Sox Covered By Kolten Lava; Lose To Cards, 5-2

Kolten Wong was humiliated in the World Series last year. Sent in to pinch run, he was picked off to end a game by Koji Uehara. Wong exacted some revenge tonight., clouting two solo HRs in St. Louis' 5-2 win over Boston. Of course, The Carmine Hose were facing Adam Wainwright—so criticizing the offense is not really fair tonight. Mike Napoli and Christian Vazquez each knocked in a run, but it was not enough for a mediocre performance by Brandon Workman. Stuck at 50 wins.
