After an intense 6 game series the Boston Red Sox triumphed over the St. Louis Cardinals in the 2013 World Series.

Boston went into the Series with a home field advantage, which paid off when the Red Sox beat the Cardinals (6-1) in game 6 at Fenway Park.

David Ortiz was the Series MVP after hitting 30 home runs and batted .309 during the regular season. During the post season Ortiz had 5 home runs, batted .360, and hit an amazing game tying grand slam in game 2 against the Cardinals. Ortiz finished in the top 10 in a 3 categories in the American League this season making him an easy pick for the World Series MVP.

Red Sox fans brought plenty of energy to the game as they cheered on the team. “I don’t know how you explain it,” pitcher Jon Lackey said. “An atmosphere, a vibe that was pretty special.” Lackey went almost seven innings with just one run and one walk, making him one of the few pitchers to clinch a championship for Boston since 1918. Boston’s big win marked their third World Series Title in the past decade. Cardinals’ pitcher Michael Wacha allowed the 6 runs in final game after going unbeaten in the playoffs.
