Things got started in the third inning when outfielder Shane Victorino hit a bases clearing triple to give the Boston boys a 3-0. Then in the fourth, they tacked on 3 extra runs and they never looked back!
The Sox also got a solid performance from veteran pitcher John Lackey, who struck out 5 and only gave up 1 earned run over 6 2/3 innings!
David Ortiz, AKA Big Papi, was named the series MVP, which seems appropriate since he became the most feared hitter in their line-up! Seriously, the Cards wanted NOTHING to do with him and walked him 4 times last night!
The Red Sox caught a lot of people off guard this year, as many picked them to finish last in the AL East before the season began. But they ended up finishing the regular season with the best record in the league and soared through the playoffs to earn their first World Series title since 2007!
Congrats, boys! You played wicked awesome!
