Back to Boston for Game 6 In World Series

The World Series is headed back to Fenway Park tonight for Game 6, with a chance for the Boston Red Sox to win it all against the St.Louis Cardinals.  Cards pitcher Michael Wacha will square off against the Sox’s John Lackey on the mound for the second time this series.

The pitching matchup tonight is reminiscent of Game 2, where Lackey threw for 6 1/3 innings, allowing only five hits and three earned runs. Lackey struck out six in that game, and came in again for Game 4, where he worked a scoreless eighth inning.

In that Game 2, Wacha allowed four walks in six innings, including a two-run homer he gave up to the on fire David Ortiz, who is batting  11 for 15 in the Series so far, with two home runs, six RBIs, four walks, and a sacrifice fly.

Game 2 ended in favor of the Cardinals, as they topped the Sox to even the series 1-1. Game 3 fell in favor of the Cards as well, but the Red Sox came back to claim victory in both the fourth and fifth games of the series.

The Red Sox are looking to win Game 6, too, which would be their first World Series title at home since September of 1918. Fenway was only six years old at the time of the last at home title, and now, it has been nearly a hundred years, and Boston fans think it is time for the Sox to clinch the win at home.

The Cardinals last won a title in 2011, and they hope to extend the series to a Game 7 tonight behind their young pitcher Michael Wacha if they want a chance to clinch their second title in just three seasons. The first pitch is set for 8:07 p.m. tonight.
