BOSTON – Thursday, Craig Breslow '02 became the first Yale player since 1986 to play in a World Series. He and the Boston Red Sox lost to the St. Louis Cardinals to even the series at 1-1.
Entering in a tough spot in the seventh inning, Breslow allowed one hit and a sacrifice fly on which he made a throwing error. Three Cardinals scored, but none of the runs were charged to Breslow. This continues his untouched 0.00 playoff ERA through 7.1 innings.
