Gomes' Blast Lifts Red Sox Past Cardinals

Jonny Gomes belted a three-run homer in the sixth inning to send the Red Sox to a 4-2 win over the Cardinals in Game Four of the World Series. Lance Lynn was charged with three runs in less than six innings to take the loss. The best-of-seven series is now tied at two games apiece. Cardinals rookie Kolten Wong was picked off at first base to end Game Four last night in Busch Stadium. Wong was running for Allen Craig and left Carlos Beltran with the bat in his hand at the plate to end the game. Beltran represented the tying run in the 4-2 loss. The Cardinals send ace Adam Wainwright to the hill for Game Five of the World Series tonight. Wainwright was roughed up for five runs in as many innings in Game One of the series. He will face Boston's Game One starter Jon Lester. First pitch is set for 7:07 from Busch Stadium.

There are few things more inspiring in life than watching an octogenarain with two hip replacements swimming a 200 yard race, or guys in their late 70's playing some pretty vigorous 3 on 3 basketball. A generation of baby boomers is learning that, while they can't reverse age, they certainly can embrace life!
