The Boston Red Sox pulled away in the early going and never looked back to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 to win their third World Series title since 2004.

The Boston Red Sox are 2013 World Series champions. 

By beating the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6, they captured their third World Series title since 2004 and the first they won at home since 1918. Designated hitter David Ortiz capped off a very memorable season by being named World Series MVP, batting .688 with two home runs and six RBIs. 

Ortiz said,"I knew that it was going to be a special year. And when we started rolling, nobody stopped the train." 

The Red Sox broke the game wide open in the third inning when Jacoby Ellsbury singled, Ortiz walked and Johnny Gomes was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Boston outfielder Shane Victorino, who had been 0-for-10 prior to this at-bat, hit a double high off the Green Monster in left field to score three runs. 

In the top of the fourth, St. Louis tried to get something going after Allen Craig singled and Yadier Molina reached first base after a Dustin Pedroia error. However, Red Sox starter John Lackey got Matt Adams to line out to left and struck out David Freese to end the potential threat. 

Red Sox shortstop Stephen Drew then homered to center field off Cardinals starter Michael Wacha for a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the inning. Mike Napoli singled to score Ellsbury and Victornio added his fourth RBI of the evening to put Boston on top by six runs -- a lead it would never relinquish. 

When Lackey faced a bases-loaded situation in the seventh, Red Sox manager John Farrell pulled him out in favor of Junichi Tazawa, who got the much-needed out at first on a grounder to Craig. 

Vaunted Boston closer Koji Uehara then finished off matters in the bottom of the ninth, completing a remarkable turnaround from last year's 69-93 last-place finish under then-manager Bobby Valentine. 

By winning 97 regular-season games and eventually the World Series title in 2013, the Red Sox became the first team since the 1991 Minnesota Twins to win a championship in spite of finishing dead last the season before. Overall, it is Boston's eighth World Series title. 

St. Louis was seeking its second title in three years, but came up short. Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday gave the Red Sox credit for the win.  

"They beat us. They deserve a lot of credit. I don't feel like for whatever reason, we played our best. I think when you don't finish by winning your last game, there's certainly disappointment. There's only one team that gets to leave the field as winners." 

Red, white and blue fireworks in the sky added to the post-game festivities as MLB commissioner Bud Selig handed the World Series trophy to Red Sox owners John Henry, Tom Werner and Larry Lucchino, to the delight of the sellout crowd at Fenway Park. 

The commissioner summed up matters very aptly.

"I want to congratulate Larry Lucchino, Tom Werner, John Henry, Ben Cherington, John Farrell and all the great Red Sox players. This started off as a really tough year in Boston, and it was Boston Strong and the Red Sox have made all your fans very, very proud."
