It was tempting to write off the Cardinals, with an injured Beltran and a shaky Kozma, after Game 1, but Game 2 showed how quickly things can change over the course of even 24 hours in a World Series. "I don't know what's going to happen at home," Kozma said -- Games 3, 4 and 5 will be played in St. Louis, starting on Saturday -- "but in here we all feel pretty good." It was a reminder that in a World Series, past performance is not always indicative of future results.
