The Boston Red Sox World Series History Report

by Bill Chuck on October 20, 2013

Congratulations to the Boston Red Sox and to Red Sox Nation after winning their 13th American League championship and their first since 2007.

The win Saturday night was just the second time Boston wrapped up a postseason series in Game 6 (following the Game 6 win in 1918 over the Cubs that captured the World Series title) and the third time Boston has clinched the AL pennant at home following wins in 1986 and 2007.

Both Boston and St. Louis are trying to become the first team to win three world championships in the 21st century.

The Red Sox have won a team-record eight straight World Series games following sweeps of the Cardinals in 2004 and the Rockies in 2007.

Koji Uehara was the ALCS MVP.
