For the third time (2004, 2007) in the last 10 years, the Boston Red Sox have won the World Series. Going into tonight's Game 6 match-up, the St. Louis Cardinals had Michael Wacha taking on the mound. Given the fact that Wacha was looking to become the first pitcher in MLB history to win five games in one postseason, people could speculate that the 22-year-old rookie pitcher was due for a collapse.
Unfortunately, Wacha looked overmatched throughout tonight's game, giving up six earned runs, walking four and striking out five in only 3.2 innings. Even though the Red Sox were never able to pile on the runs after Wacha's departure, the BoSox's John Lackey (6.2 innings, one earned run) was able to keep the Cards offense in check and secure the victory.
While it has yet to be announced, it goes without saying that the World Series MVP is David Ortiz after a postseason performance for the ages.
