The Boston Red Sox are World Series champions for the eighth time in franchise history.
Shane Victorino hit a three-run double and drove in four runs as the Red Sox knocked off the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game Six of the Fall Classic at Fenway Park.
Boston’s previous two championships were won on the road in 2007 and 2004.
The Sox also joined the 1991 Minnesota Twins as the only teams to win the World Series one season after finishing in last place in their division.
Boston Red Sox designated hitter David Ortiz is the Most Valuable Player of the World Series.
Ortiz hit .688 with a pair of home runs and six RBIs in the six-game Fall Classic.
