Trevor Rosenthal apparently had late dinner plans or maybe he wanted to go back to his hotel room and play GTA V. The 23-year-old Cardinals’ closer mowed down the Red Sox in the ninth inning of World Series Game 2 in Boston Thursday night with surgical precision, capping a 4-2 St. Louis victory.
He threw 11 pitches — nine for strikes — sitting down Jonny Gomes, Jarrod Saltalamacchia and Daniel Nava is roughly 8.7 seconds.
22-year-old Carlos Martinez was equally as impressive in during the seventh and eight helping the Cardinals even the Series at one game apiece. Michael Wacha, also 22, started the game for St. Louis and earned the win, despite allowing a homer to David Ortiz in the sixth.
Boston, meanwhile, lost its first World Series game since Game 7 of the 1986 Fall Classic to the Mets — a string of nine games.
