 SCOREBOARD
Monday, Oct. 15
Arizona at Colorado (10:18 p.m. EDT). The Rockies try to advance to the World Series for the first time in franchise history.

STARS
-Yorvit Torrealba, Rockies, hit a tiebreaking three-run homer to fuel Colorado's 4-1 victory over Arizona.

ROLLIN' ROCKS
Josh Fogg allowed one run in six innings in his first postseason start as Colroado beat Arizona 4-1 in Game 3 of the NL championship series on Sunday to move within a game of sweeping the series. The win was the Rockies' 20th in 21 games.

PRESSURE ON ROOKIES
Franklin Morales faces Micah Owings in a matchup of rookies who have never faced each other's teams as Colorado looks to finish off Arizona on Monday. The Diamondbacks are hoping to join the 2004 Boston Red Sox, who rallied past the New York Yankees, as the only teams to overcome a 3-0 hole to win a best-of-seven postseason series.

SECOND SHOT
Daisuke Matsuzaka starts for Boston in Game 3 of the ALCS on Monday with the series tied 1-1. Matsuzaka is looking to bounce back from a rough outing in his first playoff start in which he lasted just 4 2-3 innings. He allowed six runs and a season-high 12 hits against the Indians in a May 30 loss but gave up four hits in seven scoreless innings on July 24 in his only game in Cleveland.

SPEAKING
``We as a pitching staff love that guy. He's a thinker. He could go 0-for-20 behind the plate and it wouldn't even matter.'' - Colorado reliever Matt Herges, on catcher Yorvit Torrealba's importance to the Rockies' pitching staff, which has a 1.77 ERA through six postseason games.

SEASONS
Oct. 15
1917 - The Chicago White Sox won the World Series when the New York Giants left home plate uncovered and Eddie Collins dashed home with third baseman Heinie Zimmerman chasing him in helpless pursuit.
1925 - Kiki Cuyler's bases-loaded double in the eighth inning gave the Pittsburgh Pirates a 9-7 victory over Walter Johnson and the Washington Senators in Game 7 of the World Series, capping a comeback from a 3-1 deficit.
1946 - Enos Slaughter scored from first on Harry Walker's double to give the St. Louis Cardinals to a 4-3 victory in Game 7 and the World Series title against the Boston Red Sox.
1981 - Dave Righetti, Ron Davis and Goose Gossage combined on a 4-0 shutout of the Oakland A's to give the New York Yankees their 33rd American League pennant.
1986 - The Boston Red Sox capped one of the greatest comebacks in history by defeating the California Angels 8-1 to win the American League pennant after trailing three games to one in the playoffs.
1986 - Ray Knight keyed a three-run ninth to tie the score and the New York Mets won their third National League pennant by beating the Houston Astros 7-6 in 16 innings in the longest postseason game.
1988 - With two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Kirk Gibson hit a two-run, pinch homer to give the Los Angeles Dodgers a 5-4 victory over Oakland in Game 1 of the World Series. Gibson, who did not start because of a strained left knee, limped around the bases as the Dodgers won one of the most dramatic games in series history.
1997 - The Cleveland Indians survived another brilliant effort by Mike Mussina and claimed their second pennant in three years, defeating the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 on an 11th-inning homer by Tony Fernandez to win the AL championship series 4-2.
