Why the Red Sox won: The Red Sox scored double digits twice and hit .333 for the series.

Why the Rockies lost: The Rockies, winners of 21 of 22, couldn't keep the momentum they had coming into the Series. A 13-1 loss in the opener will do that.

Memorable moment: Dustin Pedroia led off Game 1 with a homer, only the second-ever Series-opening home run.

Key stat: 8. The amount of days the Rockies had off between the NLCS and World Series.
