Watch: Nothing going right for Cardinals as Ellsbury escapes pickle

Image placeholder title

From the Cardinals' perspective, Game 6 of the World Series is perhaps best summarized by the play above. With two outs in the fifth, Boston's Jacoby Ellsbury hit a grounder to second base that Matt Carpenter booted for an error. Ellsbury then attempted to steal second before St. Louis reliever Kevin Siegrist had committed to home plate, allowing Siegrist to throw to first base and get Ellsbury in a pickle.
