Right in their hometown, at Fenway Park, the Boston Red Sox won the World Series after crushing the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6. The sellout crowd of 38,477 went wild, and tears of joy were aplenty. Although it wasn’t a sweep of the Cardinals like back in 2004, the BoSox delivered fierce competition throughout the series. David Ortiz, Shane Victorino, and John Lackey are just a few of the names whose World Series performances lifted Boston above St. Louis. In fact, Ortiz was named MVP of the series, which is no surprise considering he batted .688, nailed two home runs, scored seven runs, knocked in six, and busted out a mind-blowing .760 on-base percentage. Second baseman Dustin Pedroia is already confident about setting his sights on 2014, expressing, “Your goal playing for the Red Sox every year is to try to be at this point and win the World Series. Next year we’re going to come in, and our goal is to win the World Series, and that’s never going to change here.”
