Holland Shuts Down Cards in Texas Game 4 Win: A day after the St. Louis Cardinals exploded for 16 runs, Texas Rangers starter Derek Holland held them to two hits over 8 1/3 innings in a 4-0 game 4 win. Texas catcher Mike Napoli hit a three-run home run in the sixth off the first pitch he saw from Cardinals reliever Mitchell Boggs. "I thought I was ready for that moment," Boggs said. "I made the pitch with conviction and with everything I had."

I still think that Boggs pitch was unhittable. It was so far inside Napoli had to back up just to have a chance at it.

I don't see a favorite in this Series. It would be fitting for it to go seven games and be decided by one late-inning play.

Echoes of 1993: the 15-14 game followed by Curt Schilling's shutout.

Highly entertaining thus far.

Conviction don't get the ball down in the zone, son.
