ST. LOUIS -- ST. LOUIS (AP) — There's no telling how these wacky World Series games will end.
One night after a rare obstruction call, Jonny Gomes hit a decisive homer when he wasn't even in the original lineup and Koji Uehara picked off a rookie at first base for the final out.
An entertaining, even goofy World Series is tied at two games apiece following Boston's 4-2 victory Sunday night, which ensured the title will be decided back at Boston's Fenway Park.
"Emotional roller-coaster here, obviously," Gomes said.
Inserted into the lineup about 75 minutes before gametime, Gomes hit a tiebreaking, three-run shot off reliever Seth Maness in the sixth inning.
Felix Doubront and surprise reliever John Lackey, both starters during the regular season, picked up for a gritty Clay Buchholz to help the Red Sox hang on.
And of course, another bizarre ending: Uehara picked off pinch-runner Kolten Wong — with postseason star Carlos Beltran standing at the plate.
