Shoddy defense by St. Louis and sloppy umpiring helped the Boston Red Sox turn Wednesday’s World Series opener into a tea party.

Boston’s Mike Napoli hit a three-run double right after the umps reversed a blown call, Jon Lester made an early lead stand up and the Red Sox romped past St. Louis 8-1.

The win was the Red Sox ninth consecutive in World Series play, tying the Reds for the fourth-longest streak in Major League Baseball history.

Maui’s Shane Victorino went 0-4 at the plate but made a terrific play to finish the game. With two outs in the ninth, Cardinals’ David Freese hit a sharp single and right fielder Victorino nearly threw him out at first base.
