Victorino delivers the decisive blow in World Series Game 6Credit: USA Today/Robert Deutsch The Boston Red Sox went worst to first, that being first in all of baseball by virtue of a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6 of the 2013 World Series on Wednesday night.  A key 2 out, 3-run triple by Red Sox RF Shane Victorino in the 3rd inning opened the scoring for the Red Sox and they never looked back.  Victorino missed Games 4 and 5 with a balky back.  Ironically, his replacement in Game 4 Johnny Gomes delivered the decisive 3-run home run blow in that 4-2 victory.  It’s as if manager John Farrell could do no wrong.  It’s the Red Sox third title in 10 years, having won in 2004 and 2007. This is the first Red Sox World Series clinching victory at home in some 95 years, as their previous two titles were won in Games 4 on the road in clean sweeps. 1B/DH David Ortiz was named the World Series MVP, going 11-16 (.688) and reached base in 9 straight plate appearances, tying a World Series record.  In Game 6, he was walked four times as the Cardinals were tired of dealing with his bat. The Red Sox finished in 5th place at 69-93 in 2012, trading away high paid talent for youth and even just salary relief, bringing in key economical free agents like Shane Victorino, Mike Napoli, and Stephen Drew. The party in Boston is expected to go on until sunrise. - David Whitlock Be sure to like our Facebook Page Or follow us on Twitter - David Whitlock Follow @lhd_on_sports - Blog Follow @RBTS_baseball - Sports-Kings Follow @realsportskings The post Boston Red Sox club the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6, win World Series appeared first on Reading Between The Seams.
