The Boston Red Sox sealed their third World Series in 10 years after beating the St Louis Cardinals 6-1 in Game 6 and Fenway Park.

The Red Sox went in to the game knowing a win of any sort will eradicate the need for a seventh and will end their 95 year wait to win a World Series in Boston.

Star of the series David Ortiz completed his MVP performance by impressively walking on to base four times in five plate appearances.

22-year-old rookie Michael Wacha was dubbed as a potential saviour for the Cardinals but he lasted just three innings.

The Red Sox took advantage and scored three times in the third innings to make it 3-0. Shane Victorino's double allowed Jacoby Ellsbury, Ortiz and Jonny Gomes to score.

Wacha was subsequently removed in the fourth innings after Stephen Drew had scored a solo home run to make it 4-0.

John Lackey's pitching remained solid throughout the game and was awarded with a standing ovation from Fenway Park as he left in the sixth innings.

Soon after in the seventh, the Cardinals scored their only run of the game after Carlos Beltran scored shortstop Daniel Descalso with a single hit.

Closing pitcher Koji Uehara continued his fine World Series form by closing out in the ninth to send the crowd in to raptures.

Winning the World Series has come as a pleasant surprise for the Boston Red Sox, who just 12 months ago were sitting rock-bottom in the American League East - their worst performance since 1965.
