    Ortiz provided it with his bat. "I'm one of the guys that have been here the longest," Ortiz said, now two wins away from his third World Series ring. That was the formula for success in Game 5 of the World Series, when Ortiz flied out to Shane Robinson in center for the second out of the sixth inning.

He moved to first base at Busch Stadium with similar results: After grounding out in the second inning of Game 3, he strung together a chain of nine singles, doubles and walks, finally ending it with a flyout to center against Adam Wainwright in the sixth inning of Game 5.
