Boston Head To World Series After Knocking Out Tribe 11-2 In Game Seven

If They call the Boston Red Sox march to the pennant back in 1967 "The Impossible Dream" the 2007 A.L.C.S. would have to be labeled the "Improbable Comeback." After taking game one of the series from the Cleveland Indians, Boston spent games 2,3, and 4, looking like characters from a George Romero movie "Dawn of the Living Dead Ballplayers." Cleveland won an extra inning game in game two and dominated in games 3 and 4. Boston had to win all the three remaining games left in the series to make it back to the World Series for the first time since breaking the curse in 2004.

Well although it was not the unprecedented comeback they made against the New York Yankees as they had to win four games to come back from the edge of the abyss it was pretty darn close. But after Josh Beckett who was named A.L.C.S. MVP won game five and the ancient warrior Curt Schilling won game six it was a one game series knotted up at three each.

Game Seven came down to Dice-K being just good enough to get a win two amazing performances at the plate from Boston's Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youkilis and an ill advised coaching decision from Cleveland Indians third base coach Joel Skinner, that might have cost the Indians, the momentum, the game and the series. Boston dodging the bullet in the top of the seventh came back with a Pedroia two run homer in the bottom of the seventh, and scored six runs in the eighth to put Boston back in the World Series winning 11-2. Jake Westbrook takes the loss, as Cleveland once again says wait til next year.
