The World Series is now tied after the Cardinals came from behind to beat the Red Sox 4-2 last night in Boston.

Games 3, 4 and 5 move to Saint Louis starting tomorrow night. It’s the fourth time the Cardinals have made it to the Fall Classic since 2004.

From the Here & Now Contributors Network, Maria Altman of St. Louis Public Radio reports that in a city trying to reinvent itself, the Cardinals are always a source of pride.
