Today In Red Sox History
1999 -- Pedro Martinez dominated for seven shutout innings while the Red Sox roughed up Roger Clemens in sending the New York Yankees to their most lopsided loss in postseason history, 13-1 in Game 3 of the ALCS.
2003 -- Aaron Boone hit a pennant-winning homer leading off the bottom of the 11th in New York's 6-5 win over Boston in Game 7 of the ALCS. Mariano Rivera pitched three scoreless innings in relief for the win.
Pedro Jaime Martinez, three-time Cy Young award winner for the Boston Red Sox is one of baseball's best pitchers. In 1999 he recorded the most remarkable seasons ever; Pedro went 23-4 with a 2.07 ERA—during a campaign that saw the most scoring since 1936. Behind this stunning performance, the Red Sox managed to shadow the Yankees all year, but fell four wins short of a division title.
In 1986 Danny Heep became the first player in a World Series to be a designated hitter (DH) with the initials "D.H."
THAT'S SPELLED S-O-X
