Maybe Boston Red Sox cloer Koji Uehara would have retired St. Louis Cardinals outfielder Carlos Beltran for the final out of Game 4 of the World Series and preserved the win. Maybe Beltran would have found a way to keep the inning alive with a runner on first and the Cards would have rallied. Because of Kolten Wong, we will never know.
Wong, the St. Louis infielder who entered as a pinch runner following Allen Craig’s one-out single in the ninth inning, was picked off at first base by Uehara to end the game. His run meant very little with the Cardinals trailing 4-2 and down to their last out.
