The Boston Red Sox have done it. They have swept the St. Louis Cardinals and won the World Series. This is an incredible come from behind story, after
being down 3 games to none against the Yankees. The Red Sox won tonight 3-0.
ST. LOUIS - The Boston Red Sox — yes, the Boston Red Sox! — are World Series champions at long, long last. No more curse and no doubt about it.
Ridiculed and reviled through decades of defeat, the Red Sox didn't just beat the St. Louis Cardinals, owners of the best record in baseball, they
swept them for their first crown since 1918.
Johnny Damon homered on the fourth pitch of the game, Derek Lowe made it stand up and the Red Sox won 3-0 Wednesday night. Edgar Renteria grounded out
for the final out, wrapping up a Series in which the Red Sox never trailed.
Chants of "Let's go, Red Sox!" bounced all around Busch Stadium, with Boston fans as revved-up as they were relieved. Only 10 nights earlier, the Red
Sox were just three outs from getting swept by the New York Yankees in the AL championship series before becoming the first team in baseball
postseason history to overcome a 3-0 deficit.
