  • Game 6

    7.5
    This is one Game 6 that Boston fans do not want to forget.



    Not the most competitive game, but Red Sox fans knew this would be a win despite who they were facing. Michael Wacha has been dominant, but it was clear Boston was on a run and they had the momentum on their side.



    What a run this was, what a comeback from last year's disaster and September of two years ago.



    Great moment for all Boston Red Sox fans.moreless

  • QUOTES (4)

    • Boston Manager John Farrell: There's I think a civil responsibility that we have wearing this uniform, particularly here in Boston. And it became a connection initially, the way our guys reached out to individuals or to hospital visits. And it continued to build throughout the course of the season. I think our fans, they got to a point where they appreciated the way we played the game, how they cared for one another. And in return they gave these guys an incredible amount of energy to thrive on in this ballpark.
      .
      Boston Manager John Farrell: When the fireworks went off at the presentation of the trophy out there, when the ballpark was filled with smoke, it was completely surreal. To be in this position, given where we've come from, reflecting back a year ago at this time, there's been a lot that's happened in 13 months.

    • Boston Designated Hitter David Ortiz: (to the fans) This is for you, Boston. You guys deserve it. We've been through a lot this year and this is for all of you and all those families who struggled.
      .
      Boston Designated Hitter David Ortiz: We have a lot of players with heart. We probably don't have the talent that we had in '07 and '04, but we have guys that are capable (of staying) focused and do the little things.

    • St. Louis Manager Mike Matheny: They were some frustrated guys in there, but overall you can't ask us to go about any better than how our guys did. Not too many people expected us to do what we did.

    • St. Louis Starter Michael Wacha: I just made too many mistakes. It doesn't matter how hard you're throwing if you can't locate it.
