Umpires reversed a bad call at second base in the first inning of Wednesday night's opener between Boston and St. Louis, opening the way for Mike Napoli's three-run double to give the Red Sox a 3-0 lead.
With Dustin Pedroia on first and one out, David Ortiz hit a slow bouncer to second baseman Matt Carpenter that had an outside chance of being turned into an inning-ending double play.
Carpenter made a backhand flip to shortstop Pete Kozma, who while coming across the base allowed the ball to bounce off the edge of his glove's webbing and fall to the ground.
