Red Sox End Curse
On Oct. 27, 2004, the Boston Red Sox put an end to the “Curse of the Bambino”.
The Red Sox finally ended their championship curse as they defeated the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series to complete the sweep.
It was the first title for the franchise since 1918. The Red Sox started their stunning postseason run by overcoming a 3-0 series deficit against the New York Yankees. Boston won eight straight games to close the postseason.
The Red Sox would continue their winning ways with another World Series title in 2006 as they swept the Colorado Rockies in four games.
This year the Red Sox are once again battling the St. Louis Cardinals in the World Series. But after last nights play the Red Sox now trail in the series two games to one.
