BOSTON — The Fenway Park crowd was eager all night, standing, yelling, cheering. All that pent-up energy exploded as Shane Victorino crushed a Michael Wacha fastball high off the Green Monster, scoring three runs. Victorino pounded his chest and yelled as he advanced to third base. It seemed over then. The Red Sox had the lead.

For the first time since 1918, Boston would celebrate a World Series-clinching victory by the home team at this historic park. The Red Sox jumped out in front early against the St. Louis Cardinals and rolled to a 6-1 win, taking the Series, four games to two.

David Ortiz, now a three-time World Series champion, was named the most valuable player.

Victorino started the party with a two-out, bases-loaded double in the third inning. Wacha, the brilliant Cardinals rookie, finally seemed mortal. He had allowed just three runs in his previous 29 innings this postseason. He was pulled midway through the fourth and walked off the mound clearly distraught.
