Boston Blunders Put St. Louis On Top Late in Game Two

Adam Wainwright and Yadier Molina are likely breathing a sigh of relief; not because their team is ahead 4-2 after a 3-run 7th inning, but because the spotlight on their epic blunder will be a lot dimmer after the one the Red Sox had that helped put the Cardinals on top.
There is a lot going on in the GIF so here is the sequence of events:
  • Matt Carpenter hit sacrifice fly to left
  • Pete Kozma scored, Jon Jay to third
  • Daniel Descalsoto second on catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia's fielding error
  • Jon Jay scored, Daniel Descalso to third on pitcher Craig Breslow's fielding error
Ouch! To make matters worse the pain wasn't over at that point; the blunders were, but the damage they caused was not quite fully actualized until:
  • Carlos Beltr├ín singled to shallow right, Daniel Descalso scored
Wainwright and Molina's gaffe was the worse of the two, but thanks to this mess it is now yesterday's news.
