Boston Red Sox Reach The World Series
# Beat Yankees 10-3 In Game 7 Of Series
# World Series Begins Saturday

Oct 21, 2004 12:22 am US/Eastern
NEW YORK (AP) Boston blew away decades of defeat with four sweet swings. Believe it, New England -- the Red Sox are in the World Series.

And they got there with the most unbelievable comeback of all, shaming the New York Yankees with a 10-3 victory.

Just three outs from getting swept out of the AL championship series three nights earlier, the Red Sox finally humbled the dreaded Yankees, winning Game 7 Wednesday night to become the first major league team ever to overcome a 3-0 postseason series deficit.

Cursed for 86 years, these Red Sox just might be charmed.

There is no torture this time, no hour of humiliation. Better yet to Boston fans, it's the Yankees who are left to suffer the memory of a historic collapse.

Boston didn't need any of the late-inning dramatics that marked the last three games, leading 6-0 after two innings.

Ortiz, the series MVP, started it with a two-run homer in the first off broken-down Kevin Brown, and Damon quieted Yankee Stadium in the second inning with a grand slam on Javier Vazquez's first pitch.

After Derek Jeter sparked hope of a comeback with a run-scoring single in the third, Damon put a two-run homer into the upper deck for an 8-1 lead in the fourth.

Lowe, pitching on just two days' rest, silenced the Yankees' bats and their boasting fans, who just last weekend assumed New York's seventh pennant in nine years was all but a lock. He allowed one hit in six innings then Pedro Martinez started the seventh, his first relief appearance in five years.

Three hits and two runs got the crowd going, but the rally stopped there and Mark Bellhorn added a solo homer in the eighth for a 9-3 Boston lead.

Cheering of Red Sox fans could be heard in the ninth, and when pinch-hitter Ruben Sierra grounded to second baseman Pokey Reese for the final out, Boston players ran on the field and jumped together in a mass huddle to the first-base side of the mound.

Yankees players slowly walked off, eliminated on their home field for the second straight season.

On a cool, crisp night in the Bronx, the historical pattern was broken, and the World Series will start at Fenway Park on Saturday night against St. Louis or Houston.

Now that the Babe's team has been beaten, Boston can try to reverse The Curse, win the Series for the first time since 1918 and bring happiness to the Hub which can scarcely believe the tumultuous turn of events.

From Fenway Park to Faneuil Hall, from Boston Common to Beacon Hill, the 11th pennant for the Red Sox, the first since 1986, will be remembered as perhaps the sweetest.

None of the previous 25 major league teams to fall behind 3-0 even forced a series to seven games. The wild-card Red Sox became only the third of 239 teams in the four major North American sports leagues to overcome a 3-0 deficit in a best-of-seven series and win, joining hockey's 1942 Toronto Maple Leafs and the 1975 New York Islanders.
