Trot Nixon slips and falls in a puddle in the outfield while trying to catch Edgar Renteria's third-inning double during Game 3. Rain had soaked St. Louis before the start of the game. however, it didn't prevent the teams from playing. The slip by Nixon didn't affect the outcome as the Cardinals only run came in the ninth inning. And with the 4-1 victory the Red Sox were just one win from overcoming all of their ghosts.
