2007 World Series, Game 4: Red Sox @ Rockies

MLB Vault
Boston Red Sox 4 at Colorado Rockies 3, F — A scintillating seven-game winning streak that began in Cleveland with the season on the brink of elimination ended with the Red Sox mobbing each other in the thin air of Coors Field of all places, culminating in a World Series championship that didn’t take even close to 86 years this time around. It all ended with Jonathan Papelbon, the closer who has been brilliant all year and into the postseason, striking out Seth Smith on 95-mph heat. The fiery right-hander tossed his glove high in the air with joy, took his hat off and then embraced catcher Jason Varitek after saving the World Series clincher for left-hander Jon Lester. From there, it was a sea of Red Sox piling on top of each other in the middle of the diamond.
