ST. LOUIS -- David Ortiz and David Ross at the plate, Jon Lester on the mound. That's really all you need to know about Game Five of the World Series, a 3-1 win for the Boston Red Sox over the St. Louis Cardinals that puts them one win away from another championship.

With a 3-2 lead in the series, the Red Sox have two chances to grab a title in front of the Fenway faithful for the first time since 1918. Their first one is Wednesday night with John Lackey on the mound against Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha. Lackey, remember, won Game Seven for the Anaheim Angels in 2002 against San Francisco.

Click below to hear my audio report on Game Five with my thoughts on Ortiz, Lester and how another title could play into the legacy of Ortiz and the Red Sox franchise as a whole.

This could be one pretty epic night in Boston coming up.
