The Boston Red Sox have jumped out to another quick start in the World Series.
The Boston Red Sox have jumped out to another quick start in the World Series.

The Red Sox took advantage of three St. Louis errors and won their sixth straight World Series game last night at Fenway Park.

And lead the best of seven one game to none.

Bad start for Adam Wainwright and the cards, two on and he gets the double play ball, but Pete Kozma drops the ball at second, umps rule everyone's safe.

Next batter is Mike Napoli and he shoots the gap in left center, Jacoby Ellsbury, Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz all come into score and it's 3-nothing Red Sox early.

Then in the second, Pedroia singles past third into left, Steven drew scores and it's 4-nothing.

Boston had the bases loaded later in that second, Ortiz rips this shot to right; Carlos Beltran slams into the wall but makes the catch, David Ross scores on the sac fly, 5-nothing.

But Beltran hurt his ribcage and had to leave the game and go to the hospital for x-rays.

In the seventh, Ortiz would get his revenge another rocket to right, this one clears the wall, the bullpen and into the bleachers, a two run shot, it's 7-nothing.

Matt Holliday hit a ninth inning homer, but Boston takes game one 8-one, game two tomorrow night at Fenway.

The beat-up Evangel Crusaders will return home to JFK stadium this Saturday.

And the Crusaders will be looking to snap a two game losing streak when Evangel welcomes Graceland for homecoming.

Brenton Illum's Crusaders have been crippled with injuries.

The most severe to senior quarterback Andrew Brimhall who has ligament damage in his knee.

Former Kickapoo Chief Brett Diers is starting at quarterback.

The sophomore threw for two touchdowns and 177 yards last week.

He hopes to do better at home against 1-and-six Graceland.

“It's a lot from three weeks ago when I was on the sideline signaling,” says Diers. “Now this reading defenses on every play and making sure I call the right play."

"There's a lot of quality growth going in right now,” says Brenton Illum, the Evangel coach. “And I know the scoreboard doesn't say that. And I’ve the perspective that I’m not going anywhere right now. We have a long term plan here. We have a ton of freshmen 25 of our 55 travel guys were freshmen. That's exciting. That makes it tough right now, but for the future things are set up."

The Missouri State soccer team hosted Central Arkansas Wednesday night.

The Bears went into the game with four wins and a tie in their last five matches.

Missouri State strikes early in the match, watch the teamwork, Emmerich Hoegg with the pass to James Thomas, fancy shot off the top bar, Hoegg follows up and shoots and scores, it's 1-nothing.

Central Arkansas with a shot later, Daylon Schiffel's shot goes just wide.

Later, the Bears with a penalty kick, James Fawke's shot is stopped by the central Arkansas keeper.

Missouri State goes onto win 2-nil.
