Red Sox top Cardinals for third World Series title in a decade
World Series » Boston thumps St. Louis in Game 6 to wrap up title at festive Fenway Park.

"It was an awesome atmosphere here tonight," Lackey said.

Among the players blamed for the indifferent culture at the end of the Francona years, Lackey took the mound two days shy of the second anniversary of his elbow surgery and got his first Series win since the 2002 clincher. He pitched shutout ball into the seventh, when Carlos Beltran’s RBI single ended the Cardinals’ slump with runners in scoring position at 0 for 14.

Junichi Tazawa came in with the bases loaded and retired Allen Craig on an inning-ending grounder to first. Brandon Workman followed in the eighth and Uehara finished.

St. Louis had been seeking its second title in three seasons, but the Cardinals sputtered.

Wacha entered 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in his postseason career but gave up six runs, five hits and four walks in 32⁄3 innings, the shortest start of the 22-year-old’s big league career.

"They came up here and prepared and jumped on him, and got the big hits when they needed to," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.
