Historic Fenway Park in Beantown, Mass., will be filled to capacity hoping to celebrate the (3-2) Boston Red Sox first World Series title at home since 1918.
Standing in their way is a (2-3) St. Louis Cardinals team that embodies the "Never-Say-Die" attitude that has made this year’s Fall Classic one for the history books.
First pitch for the 2013 MLB World Series Game 6 (TV schedule) is slated for Wednesday at 8:07 p.m. ET (5:07 p.m. PT), broadcasting live on FOX as well as on the following radio stations: KMOX 1120, ESPN Radio (BOS) WEEI 93.7, ESPN Radio, WUFC 1510.
A video feed of this St Louis Cardinals vs. Boston Red Sox live stream 2013 is also available online (desktop, tablet and smartphone) by visiting MLB.TV.
With the season on the line, Cardinals manager Mike Matheny will hand the ball to a rookie that's proven to be almost un-hittable in this year’s Fall Classic.
Looking for one more quality start, and looking to extend the series to a decisive Game 7, hard-throwing right-hander Michael Wacha takes the hill this evening.
"Michael is very consistent with how he approaches the game. It seems like that with every situation everybody tries to build up around him, the better he pitches," Matheny said. "We want him to not really focus on the big picture of exactly what is going on. What we want him to do is go out and make one pitch at a time. There's time for summations later."
The 22-year-old out of Texas A&M comes in unbeaten in four starts thus far in this MLB postseason, sporting a 4-0 record and an eye-popping 1.00 ERA in the process.
This will be Wacha's second look a potent Red Sox offense that managed only three hits and two runs in his 6.0 innings of work in the 2013 WS opener.
"I don't think anything will be much different," he added. "I try to approach every game the same. I imagine it's going to be crazy but I'm not going to pay any attention to it."
For first-year Red Sox skipper, John Farrell, his Game 6 starter is sure to hold a significant advantage in the experience department.
Also making his second start of the 2013 MLB WS, Boston looks to 35-year-old righty, John Lackey to put an end to this thing tonight.
Unlike Wacha, this fiery veteran is no stranger to the bright lights of October, capturing his first World Series ring as a member of the 2007 Anaheim Angels.
Much like he did in Game 4, Lackey will be trying to match the Cardinals' rookie sensation stride-for-stride, as he went 6.1 innings, allowing just 5 hits and 3 runs in a 4-2 loss last Thursday.
"We played here pretty good this season," Lackey said of Fenway Park. "The atmosphere is going to be great. The fans are going to be crazy. But you've still got to focus on the task at hand and executing, and just still playing baseball. We're still one win away."
