Boston Sets Up Sox-Rox World Series
Second-baseman Dustin Pedroia knew it was his day. He knew it was his time when he would go 3-5 with 5 RBI's. His 7th inning home-run pretty closed out the what would be a 11-2 win for the Boston Red Sox. Amazing win, especially considering the fact that ALCS MVP Josh Beckett was not needed to come out of the pen and sluggers David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez only combined to go 1-8. Kevin Youkilis also hit a towering shot in the 8th against reliever Jensen Lewis, rounding off his ALCS average to a cool .500. Once again, the Red Sox came back from a 3-1 deficit to return to the promise land and face off with the Colorado Rockies. Game 1 is set to go on Wednesday as Josh Beckett will face off with Jeff Francis.
