Cardinals Advance to Major League Baseball's World Series

It will be the Saint Louis Cardinals against the Boston Red Sox in Major League Baseball's World Series.

Scott Rolen hit a three-run home run and Jeff Suppan and three relievers combined for a three-hitter Thursday, as the Cardinals beat the Houston Astros, 5-2, in Game Seven of the National League Championship Series.

The Cardinals won the best-of-seven series four games to three. The Red Sox advanced to the World Series by beating the New York Yankees four games to three, after coming back from a three-games to none deficit.

Game One of the World Series is Saturday in Boston. Tim Wakefield will pitch for Boston, while Saint Louis has yet to announce its starting pitcher.
