BOSTON (AP) -- Michael Wacha won again in October and the St. Louis Cardinals got just enough help from Boston, beating the Red Sox 4-2 Thursday night to tie the World Series at 1-all.

Down 2-1 after David Ortiz hit a two-run homer in the sixth, the Cardinals rallied for three runs in the seventh to end Boston's nine-game winning streak in the World Series that started with a sweep of St. Louis in 2004.

Matt Carpenter's tying sacrifice fly set off a chain of Red Sox misplays. Catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia let the wide throw home skip off his glove, then pitcher Craig Breslow made a wild toss that wound up in the Fenway Park seats.

Trevor Rosenthal struck out the side in the ninth for a save. John Lackey took the loss.

Game 3 is Saturday night at Busch Stadium. Jake Peavy is set to start for Boston against Joe Kelly.
