Red Sox on verge of breaking the curse�again
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Red Sox are one win away from winning the World Series for the first time in 86 years and breaking what some say is a curse that has hung over the team since it sold Babe Ruth to the Yankees.

Of course, the Red Sox have been one win away before.

In 1946, when they lost Game Seven of the World Series to the Cardinals.

In 1967, when they lost Game Seven of the World Series to�the Cardinals.

In 1975, when they lost Game Seven of the World Series to the Reds.

And in 1986, when the Red Sox were not only one win away, but one strike away in Game Six of the World Series against the Mets.  They lost that game and -- 18 years ago tonight�lost Game Seven as well.

But never in those 86 years of futility have the Red Sox had such a commanding lead in the World Series. They�re up three-games-to-none after beating the Cardinals 4-to-1 in St. Louis last night.

That leaves them with four chances to win the series, beginning tonight when Derek Lowe goes to the mound against Jason Marquis of the Cardinals. Game Five�if needed�would be tomorrow night in St. Louis. If Games Six and Seven are necessary, they would be played at Fenway Park this weekend.
