World Series Game 1: Boston 11, St. Louis 9. Not the smoothest nine innings I've had the pleasure to see -- four Red Sox errors and 14 total walks -- but on October 23, who cares about style points?

Ortiz is simply not human at this point and Bellhorn has quickly caught fire at a perfect time. Eight of the nine starters either scored a run or had an RBI. All in all a balanced offensive attack -- and the highest scoring Game 1 in World Series history.

The Red Sox are up 1-0 and have Schilling and Pedro ready to go. That is very good news.
