Red Sox dominate from start to finish
Email to a Friend Printer Friendly Version  

ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The Red Sox never trailed during their four-game sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals, becoming the fourth team in World Series history to accomplish that feat.

The others were the 1963 Los Angeles Dodgers, the 1966 Baltimore Orioles and the 1989 Oakland Athletics.

During the Red Soxďż˝ run to their first championship since 1918, they also became the first team to come back from a three-games-to-none deficit in the playoffs, winning four straight to eliminate the Yankees in the ALCS.

That, combined with the four-game sweep of the Cardinals in the World Series, made the Red Sox the first team to win eight straight games in a single postseason.

Boston pitching dominated the Cardinals, who won 105 games during the regular season. Albert Pujols, Scott Rolen and Jim Edmonds�the meat of the St. Louis batting order�combined for just one RBI. Rolen went 0-for-15.
