The Texas Rangers nearly had their back to the wall, yet Mike Napoli came up with two on in the 6th inning, hit a three-run homer and now the World Series is a real series. Texas won Game four, 4-0. Derek Holland threw two-hit ball for 8 1/3 innings to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-0 on Sunday night and even things at 2-all.
"I was very focused. I knew this was a big game for us," said Holland, who was 16-5 with 3.95 ERA and four shutouts in the regular season. "I had to step up and make sure I was prepared."
Said Cardinals manager Tony La Russa: "Well, I would just say he worked us over. Give him credit."
Game 5 Monday in Arlington.
