Ortiz is hitting .733 in this series. The rest of the Red Sox are hitting .156 collectively. The Cardinals are obviously pitching well in this series. They've been able to quiet several other very good Boston hitters. But nothing they have tried against Ortiz has worked. He's been otherworldly.
but Lester has two of the three wins so far on his own
two bad games and those Ortiz numbers drop precipitously while Lester's will stick
anyway, the Cardinals are still going to get this thing
