Trailing 4-2, the X Man led off the ninth with a towering home run to left. Mitch Moreland and Jackie Bradley Jr. drew walks and with two out and a 3-2 count, Betts drove a ball off the Wall to deliver two runs.
St. Louis had taken a 4-0 lead off Boston starter Eduardo Rodriguez in the top of the second inning on run-coring hits by Kolton Wong, Luke Volt and Matt Carpenter, and a passed ball.
The Red Sox cut the lead in half with two runs in the bottom of the third on an RBI single by Eduardo Nunez and a sacrifice fly by Betts.
Rodriguez settled down after the second inning. He gave up eight hits and walked one while striking out six.

Yeah, I used to be that guy on WNEW-FM. No, I never worked at WPLJ (honest).
I support my family by doing two things in life I truly love - baseball and radio (WDHA).
