A little History of our Game 1 History…

With Game 1 of the 2013 World Series between the Boston Red Sox and the St. Louis Cardinals only a few hours away, here’s a look back at the first games of the 2004 and 2007 Fall Classic.

Bellhorn 2004 WS

In 2004, Red Sox second baseman Mark Bellhorn hit a two-run homer off reliever Julian Tavarez in the bottom of the eighth inning that rang off the right-field foul pole to lead Boston to an 11-9 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.

Ortiz 2004 WS

Red Sox DH David Ortiz (please note the St. Louis catcher in the photo above) hit a three-run homer and finished with four RBIs. Closer Keith Foulke recorded the final five outs of the game.

In 2007, the Red Sox crushed the Colorado Rockies 13-1 at Fenway Park. Rookie second baseman Dustin Pedroia led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run and the Red Sox never looked back. Starter Josh Beckett worked seven strong innings and allowed one run on six hits with nine strikeouts.
