"Beckett got off to the most overpowering start since Sandy Koufax,
Pedroia became only the second player to lead off the Series with a
home run, and then a relentless offense led by Manny Ramirez and David
Ortiz racked up hit after hit.
Boston set a record for runs and
victory margin in an opener and finished with 17 hits, becoming the
first club to hit eight doubles in a Series game since 1925. After
taking a 6-1 lead against Colorado ace Jeff Francis, the Red Sox piled
on seven runs in the fifth, when Rockies reliever Ryan Speier walked
three straight batters with the bases loaded — the first time that
ever happened in a Series game."
