ST. LOUIS (AP) — David Ross caught Jon Lester’s pitches into the eighth inning, then talked about the toss that really impressed him in Game 5 of the World Series.
A big paper airplane flung by a fan that floated so far, Lester stepped off the mound to retrieve it.
“We were all kind of in awe,” Ross said.
Loose? The Red Sox sure sounded that way after Lester outpitched Adam Wainwright once more, Ross delivered a go-ahead double in the seventh inning and Boston beat the St. Louis Cardinals 3-1 Monday night for a 3-2 edge.
A whisker away from yet another championship, this bearded band now goes back to Fenway Park.
“Pretty special time,” Lester said.
David Ortiz delivered his latest big hit, too, putting Boston in position to capture its third crown in a decade. Not since 1918 have the Red Sox clinched the title on their own field.
“This atmosphere here, these three games, has been phenomenal. We know it’s going to be equal to that, if not better. And we’re excited about going home in the position we are,” Red Sox manager John Farrell said.
Added Ortiz of the Red Sox’s century-old bandbox: “It’s going to get loud out there.”
