Craig Breslow picked a bad time to be human. He allowed two inherited runners to score and one of his own on a sacrifice fly, his own throwing error and a base hit as the Cardinals rallied from a 2-1 deficit to beat the Red Sox 4-2 in Game Two of the Fall Classic to even the World Series at a game apiece.

The series moves to St. Louis for games three, four and five.

The Cardinals scored first in the top of the fourth inning on an RBI ground out by Yadier Molina driving in Matt Holliday who had tripled to lead off the inning.

The Red Sox took the lead in the bottom of the sixth when, with one out, Dustin Pedroia walked. David Ortiz (pictured) followed with his 5th home run of the post-season to give Boston a 2-1 lead.

Red Sox starting pitching John Lackey got one out in the seventh before being relieved by Craig Breslow. He was charged with three runs on five hits and a pair of walks while striking out six.

Cardinals starter Michael Wacha went six innings allowing two runs on just three hits and four walks while striking out six.
