Box Score of the week (Postseason edition)

The Boston Red Sox were still enduring the "Curse of the Bambino" when they took on the Cleveland Indians in Game 1 of the 1998 American League Division Series.


If you're a baseball fan, certainly you're familiar with Game Six of the 1986 World Series when the Red Sox were one strike away from winning it all only to lose in heartbreaking fashion. That loss was the first in an MLB record thirteen game postseason losing streak. The game I referenced above snapped that ignominious streak.

In case you're wondering, the longest active postseason game losing streak is 12 ----- held by my Minnesota Twins.
