Shortly after midnight, Boston time, the Boston Red Sox defeated the Colorado Rockies by a score of 4 to 3, thereby completing a four game sweep of the World Series.
Boston's victory did not come easy. When the Rockies were batting, they made the Red Sox struggle for every out. The Red Sox tonight defeated a truly worthy team.
This makes the second time in this decade that the Red Sox are Major League Baseball champions - something that has not happened since the First World War was raging in Europe. As this observer has noted previously, credit for this goes to the owners and management of the Red Sox. Thank you John Henry, Tom Werner, Larry Lucchino, Theo Epstein, Terry Francona, and everyone else in the Red Sox organization who made this victory possible.
