Game 4 of the World Series ended with St.Louis Cardinals pinch runner Kolten Wong being picked off at first base in the bottom of the 9th, giving Boston a 4-2 win to even the series 2-2. Game 5 is tonight in St.Louis.

The Boston Red Sox can win it all at home tonight in Game 6 of the World Series. John Lackey goes to the mound for Boston, which hasn't won the title at Fenway since 1918. St. Louis will try to force one more game with rookie sensation Michael Wacha.

The Detroit Tigers need a win this afternoon to even their AL Division Series at a game apiece with Baltimore. The Orioles used an eight-run eighth inning to trample the Tigers 12-3 in Game 1 last night. The Kansas City Royals beat the Angels 3-2 in 11 innings to take Game 1 of the other AL Division Series.

We used to do it each weekend. Take me out to the chain saw Take me out with the oil Buy me some 2-stroke and goggles I don't care if I never get back Let me root, root, root for the pine tree If they don't win it's a shame For it's one, two, three chokes, you're out

It's that the league average is only 16.4 pitches per inning which implies there's probably about 5-10 seconds of activity and then 65-70 seconds of standing around.
