The Boston Red Sox defeat Cleveland, 11 – 2, in Game 7 of the ALCS to reach the World Series where they will face the Colorado Rockies. They had trailed Cleveland 3 games to 1 before mounting a comeback. Josh Beckett is the ALCS MVP after winning Games 1 and 5 of the Series. Before the game began, Paul Byrd of the Indians acknowledged using Human Growth Hormone (HGH) for four years, creating a media frenzy. Byrd said he stopped buying it once Major League Baseball banned it and that he had a doctor’s permission to use it to treat a pituitary gland condition.
