champs, jimmy rollins and a.j. pierzynski from here at fenway and alex karros and dave kapler from los angeles and the reaction from the panthers and the bucs on the nfl side. from l.a. to fenway, fox sports live is the home for the world series postgame coverage, only on fox sports 1. here's matt adams lead iing off the eighth inning against the new right-hander, brandon workman who has been so good this post -season. and a guy who started the year at aa. adams reaching with a line drive to left, and right into the glove of jonny gomes. one out. matt adams is 1 of 4 tonight, and yadier molina will step in. he has a single, and then an rbi groundout and bounced out to pedroia in the sixth.
felix doubront, the left-hander is getting loose. strike one on molina. cardinal bull pen is quiet. and why not with what carlos ma martinez showed in the bottom of the seventh dealing with the top of the order in the eighth. that is on the outside corner, strike two. >> tim: you don't know, but seeing doubront up, you have the believe that he could be just throwing in the bull pen with no rhyme nor reason to come into the game, because of the meeting with him and john farrell the day before the game. >> joe: that's just inside, ball one. >> tim: clay buchholz is suppose
supposed to start game four, and john farrell says it is a situation of having one starter in clay buchholz and then felix doubront in the wings to come in for the third or the fourth inning, and then you will have a flexible two starters for the red sox. he is not sure about that, and it depends upon whether buchholz feels like he can go deep into the lineup, and turn it over once or one and a half times and then go the doubront. i don't think that doubront is going to come into the game. i could be wrong, but i don't think so. >> joe: two balls, two strikes on yadier molina with one out. it has been some speck ulation that buchholz who looks like he is starting to run out of gas might not make that game four start that you talked about on sunday, because john farrell said we expect him to take the ball on sunday night, period.
>> joe: this is one foul off to the right. >> tim: clay buchholz has been quoted as saying, i feel that i have one more start in me. that is an odd comment coming from the great competitor who has had shoulder problems this year. >> joe: been three months on the disabled list. great year record-wise when he was out there. here's the 2-2. fly ball into center and pretty well hit, and back is ellsbury on the track. two out. cameron diaz is at the ballpark tonight at fenway park. there's paul molitor. >> tim: boy, could he play. >> joe: timothy hutton is here. and jon hamm.
>> tim: john is from st. louis, right? >> joe: from st. louis. john burrows high school and a big cardinal fan here at fenway park. allen craig taking ball one outside. >> joe: allen tonight is hitless, and he did draw a walk back in the fourth inning, and 1 for 6 so far in the world series. happy to be out there after spraining his left foot and now he is on for the second time tonight, and he has the second hit of the world series. so craig is aboard and you could see him limping a little bit going to first base. when we asked allen as to whether he would be okay to play in the field when the series goes to st. louis, and there is no d.h., and he said, i have no idea. i just don't know.
i have taken no ground balls since i got hurt, and he got hurt on september 4th. >> tim: there are two questions as to who plays first base in st. louis, allen craig and david ortiz. >> joe: the two-out kozma pops it up. that's pedroia, and that is going to send us into the bottom of the eighth in, game two, and top of the order coming up for the boston red sox who trail by two. which means it's never been easier to get a new passat, awarded j.d. power's most appealing midsize car, two years in a row. and right now you can drive one home for practically just your signature. get zero due at signing, zero down, zero deposit, and zero first month's payment on any new 2014 volkswagen. hurry, this offer ends october 31st. for details, visit vwdealer.com today. ♪ i'm the guy responsible for the quality of your beer.

>> joe: david ortiz, as he does seemingly in e very game in octobers makes his presence felt. he has the two rbis for the red sox tonight, and the shot in left over the monster there. and this is ellsbury pulling back for a fastball, strike one. we are in the bottom of the eighth, and michael wacha is in the dugout watching as ellsbury is 1 for 3 waits for the 0-1. that is over martinez. it's bobbles and dropped by carpenter. and the leadoff man is on.
a broken bat again for jacoby ellsbury, and carpenter couldn't make the play. >> tim: you could see it coming. it is probably going to be an error, and it is a tough chance and in between hop. they say that the infielders make their own hops and read their own hops, but this is tough to read and tough to make, but an error on carpenter. >> joe: the reaction from carlos martinez, and that means that the tying run will dig in, and take a listen. victorino is 0 for 3. strike one. the cardinals have literally had to remake the bull pen.
it happened to the red sox, and it happened to the cardinals. b boston lost hanrahan early in the year, and andrew bailey and they were left with uehara who has been brilliant. the cardinals have young arms in different roles in the final month of the season and in october. and so you have got a 22-year-old in carlos martinez with fenway singing to him out on the mound after wacha and mike ma theethenmatheny's close rosenthal turned 23 this season. >> tim: that is what the cardinals have done this year. they have won and developed at the same time. >> joe: it started early in the year when the cardinals lost jason motte, their close, and that set it in motion. here's the 0-2. got him looking. one away. and a breaking ball throws
victorino. >> tim: well, that slider came from nowhere to get victorino. setting outside is molina and sliding over the heart of the plate. the thing that is so impressive about martinez, obviously, it is the finish, but it is that freedom of movement of the arm. unencumbered. >> joe: well, pedro martinez was here to throw out the first pitch tonight, and the guy they called baby pedro, carlos martinez, know relation on the mound. slings it home at 96 for strike one. >> tim: and unless there is a double play, by pedroia, big papi will be hitting at least representing the tying run. at least. >> joe: that is why in the bull pen, randy choate, the left-hander just got up again and starts to get loose. right now it is pedroia.
the count, 0-2. error to start the inning, and a strikeout looking at victorino. the second strikeout for the young right-hander martinez. now the 0-2. breaking ball, foul. let's go back to the chopper hit by ellsbury to start the inning, and carlos martinez into the air. >> tim: look at that. it is like a gymnast. >> joe: he could not get the glove on the ball as he did on the ball hit up the middle on drew last inning.
and uehara is getting loose. >> joe: another 0-2 pitch to pedroia. fouled away. michael wacha went six. carlos martinez, a perfect seventh and trying to pitch around an error here in the eighth, and big papi is lurking on deck. >> joe: and carlos beltran is playing shallow in right field and pedroia is a good two-strike hitter. >> joe: strikeout. two down. and david ortiz doesn't even move out of the on-deck circle.
good tight breaking ball from martinez to get pedroia. molina going out to the mound, a and ortiz knows that he is going to deal with randy choate coming out of the cardinal bull pen. >> tim: and choate came in for one hitter last night and one hitter tonight. >> joe: choate got up a moment ago and they are trying to make sure they can stall for as long as they can. molina making the long slow walk back to the plate. what you think? no matheny. he got choate up, but he is sticking with the kid, carlos martinez, and i guarantee you, david ortiz who didn't move after the strikeout is expecting to face the left-hander here.
>> tim: he thought that choate was in the game. i don't think that there was any question about it. instead, it is the hard-throwing right-hander. >> joe: ground ball up the middle. diving stop by carpenter, but a base hit for david ortiz, and the inning continues. >> tim: matt carpenter prevents jacoby ellsbury from going to the third base, but he can't make a play. a nice play to stop it, but he can't throw it. >> joe: and so now another meeting on the mound and martinez will be facing mike napoli. and mike matheny is sticking with the 22-year-old right-hand right-hander. he has the 23-year-old right-hander trever rosenthal, his closer, getting loose, and right now it is martinez and
napoli. go ahead run at the plate. two on. two out. strike one. >> tim: mike matheny is a former major league catcher, and he is using that experience to see that carlos martinez is throwing as well as anybody could from the bull pen. he might be wrong, but that is the choice. >> joe: carlos martinez was a starter, and he is new to pitching out of the bull pen, and he is about to throw some of the biggest pitches the cardinals will have thrown for them this
