Rockies Socked in 4 Games; Sox Champions

For a second, it looked like the Rockies had a chance to come back in Game 4 last night. Down 4-1 in the bottom of the 8th inning, Garrett Atkins of the Rockies hit a two run home run off of Hideki Okajima. Immediately following this, the Red Sox inserted closer Jonathan Papelbon into the game. With Papelbon being lights out as always, the Rockies had absolutely no chance. Sealing the save, and more importantly a World Series championship, Papelbon struck out pinch hitter Seth Smith to end the game.

Mike Lowell (pictured at right) was the series' MVP. Lowell had a great Game 4 as he finished 2 for 4 including a home run.

One interesting note is that Jon Lester started the game for the Sox. Lester handled the high pressure situation extremely well. In 5.2 innings of work, Lester allowed 0 earned runs and struck out 3 hitters.

Next up: A Patriots Super Bowl win and a Celtics NBA Finals victory.
