MLB roundup: Red Sox stun Cards with three in ninth

(TSX / STATS) -- BOSTON -- Mookie Betts ripped a two-run double off the Green Monster to cap a three-run, ninth-inning rally that gave the Boston Red Sox a 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday night.

Betts, who drove in a run earlier in the game, hit a 3-2 pitch from John Brebbia off the left field wall, knocking in Chris Young and Jackie Bradley Jr. Bradley scored from first and likely would have been out at the plate, but catcher Yadier Molina couldn't hold onto the throw from shortstop Paul DeJong.

The win, which completed a four-game Red Sox sweep of the Cardinals this season, kept them 4 1/2 games ahead of the New York Yankees in the American League East. Boston has won 12 of their past 14 games.
