The Curse lives

Hernandez ends Boston's dream of a World Series

Only one thing was colder than the October air at Fenway Park, and that was the Red Sox bats with runners in scoring position. Boston left 11 men on base as the Yankees finished off Boston 6-1 in Game 5 of the ALCS. Orlando Hernandez pitched the Yankees to their 36th pennant -- he allowed just five hits in seven innings.
