Boston Red Sox vs. St. Louis Cardinals: Keys to Each Team Winning WS Game 4

A wild Game 3 saw both teams mount rallies late, with five of the game's nine total runs crossing home plate from the seventh inning on. After a controversial call to end the contest, the St. Louis Cardinals sit with a 2-1 series lead as the Fall Classic heads into Game 4 on Sunday night.

Of the 13 World Series that have been played to completion since 2000, the team that emerged victorious in Game 3 has gone on to hoist the Commissioner's Trophy nine times, a number that includes a pair of championships for the Cardinals, who won in five games back in 2006 and seven games in 2011.

But all is not lost for the Boston Red Sox, a team that can also claim a pair of championships during that time and one that is more than capable of tying the series up.

Let's take a look at the keys for both teams heading into a pivotal Game 4 that pits Boston's Clay Buchholz against St. Louis' Lance Lynn in the second of three games at Busch Stadium.
