Amazing news for baseball fans in Fresno tonight as the American League champion Boston Red Sox won against the National League champion St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 of the 2013 World Series.
This victory marks the first time in 95 years that the Red Sox had won the championship on their home turf. That is a historic moment into itself, but it is a also a very personal victory in the wake of the tragic Boston Marathon bombings in April of this year. It is no wonder that crowds of fans in Boston and inside Fenway Park are going crazy with pride right now.
This victory is their third MLB crown in 10 seasons after an 86-year drought, when their victory in 2004 finally broke the infamous "Curse of the Bambino." Shane Victorino, who was back in the Boston lineup after sitting out with a stiff back in St. Louis, drove in four runs in Game 6 tonight, and the Red Sox ultimately crushed the Cardinals, 6-1, to win the best-of-seven series, four games to two.
David Ortiz (DH) was named MVP for this year's World Series.
