Red Beans & Rocks

It was close for the first six innings. Then came a lucky 7th. (And an even luckier 8th.) Seventh inning luck in the 7th game of the ALCS means a trip to the '07 World Series for the Boston Red Sox.

JD Drew wears no. 7, and had he saved his game 6 heroics for this game, things would really be complete.

Hideki Okajima and Jonathan Papelbon each pitched two scoreless innings. Two innings a piece. There was no way Terry Francona was going to take a chance on Eric Gagne in an elimination game.

So the Fall Classic begins Wednesday night in Boston. How will the Rockies fare after such a long layoff? How will the Red Sox look if they go through the entire Series without using Eric Gagne? We'll see. Should be an interesting Series!
