The Walkoff: Gomes’ Homer, Doubront’s Relief Work Lead To Red Sox’ 4-2 Victory In Game 4 Of World Series

BOSTON (CBS) — Clay Buchholz could not make it through more than four innings, leaving the Red Sox with a 1-0 deficit in Game 4 and the prospect of a 3-1 series deficit staring them in the face.

But the Red Sox, as has been their M.O. all year, continued to fight and refused to quit. And thanks to a three-run home run by Jonny Gomes and nearly three innings of brilliant relief work by Felix Doubront, the Red Sox were able to change the game and the series.

After David Ortiz hustled home to score on a Stephen Drew sacrifice fly in the fifth inning to tie the game, Gomes stepped to the plate in the sixth. The Cardinals had just put Ortiz on first base with the unintentional intentional walk. Seth Maness came in to relieve starter Lance Lynn. Gomes didn’t have a World Series hit yet, but he picked a swell time to deliver his first.
