BOSTON -- Click below to hear my thoughts on the 8-1 thrashing the Red Sox handed the St. Louis Cardinals in Game One of the World Series Wednesday night in Fenway Park.
The Cardinals didn't make any plays defensively, didn't get the key pitches they needed to from Adam Wainwright, had a correct umpire's decision go against them and didn't score a run until the ninth inning.
Other than that, everything was fine.
It really is fine for New England's Olde Towne Team. The Red Sox made it nine straight in the World Series and have scored 10 runs in the first inning of Game One in their last three trips to the Fall Classic. That's called getting off to a good start and it's hard to beat. They go for a 2-0 lead here Thursday night.Mike Harrington on Game One
