8 a.m. ET: The World Series has become a best-of-three set. Whichever team wins two of the next three games will be crowned champion of the baseball world. The Red Sox, as they’ve done time and time again, showed a tremendous amount of resilience while capturing Game 4 in St. Louis. The Sox lost Game 3 in heartbreaking fashion, lost Shane Victorino for Game 4 due to injury, sent an ailing Clay Buchholz to the mound, fell behind 1-0, and yet still managed to even up the series with a victory Sunday. Jonny Gomes delivered the big blow in Game 4. Gomes, who was inserted into the starting lineup once Victorino was scratched with lower back tightness, connected on a three-run homer in the sixth inning that put the Red Sox ahead 4-1. The Red Sox hung on for a 4-2 win, with the last out coming via a pickoff. Koji Uehara caught pinch-runner Kolten Wong leaning at first base. The Red Sox’ Game 4 win ensured that there will be at least one more game at Fenway Park in 2013. In fact, there’s guaranteed to be a World Series celebration at Fenway this week. It’s up to the Red Sox to make sure that it’s them partying in front of the hometown fans. There is still one more game to be played in St. Louis before the series shifts back to Boston. Jon Lester and Adam Wainwright will square off in a pivotal Game 5. It’s a rematch of Game 1, in which Lester went 7 2/3 innings before walking off the mound to a standing ovation at Fenway Park. Wainwright, meanwhile, settled down after a shaky start, but was done in by the Cardinals’ sloppy defense. Monday’s Game 5 action is scheduled to get underway at 8:07 p.m. Be sure to stick around with NESN.com throughout the day for updates.
