DENVER (AP) -- The Boston Red Sox can wrap up their second World Series title in four seasons with a victory Sunday night in Colorado.

The Red Sox have outscored the Rockies 25-7 in the first three games, including Saturday night's 10-5 win at Coors Field. No team has rallied from a 3-0 World Series hole to win.

Jon Lester gets the starting nod for Boston against Aaron Cook, who hasn't pitched in a major league game in 79 days.

It won't matter who's on the mound for the Rockies if Colorado's lumber continues to slumber. After hitting a collective .280 in the regular season, the Rockies are batting just .230 in the postseason, including a .222 clip in the series.
