Red Sox Blow Away Rockies, 13-1, in Game 1 of World Series

The Red Sox won their fourth-straight postseason game in Game 1 of the World Series, handing the Rockies just their second loss in the last 23 games. Josh Beckett struck out the first four batters he faced en route to the victory. He’s now 4-0 this postseason with a 1.20 ERA and in the process, Beckett lowered his career playoff ERA to 1.73, which is the third best all-time for players with a minimum of 70 playoff innings.

With 13 runs, the Red Sox outscored the entire offensive output for the Arizona Diamondbacks, who scored just 8 runs while getting swept by the Rockies. The 13 runs were the most ever for one team in Game 1 of the World Series, eclipsing the Braves’ total of 12 back in 1996 against the Yankees. The Red Sox scored 11 runs in Game 1 back in 2004, which propelled them to a 4-0 sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals for a World Series championship.

Quotable:
