In game 1 the Red Sox built their lead on the fielding miscues of the Cardinals. In Game 2 the Cards took the game on the Sox miscues. A double steal set the stage for a sac fly to score the tying run. Rather than field the throw to the plate, Jarrod Saltalamacchia, missed on the reach. This allowed the runners to advance. To make matters worse, pitcher Craig Breslow threw the ball over the 3rd baseman's head. This allowed Jon Jay to score what proved to be the winning run.
