The Boston Red Sox are within a single clutch win of claiming the 2013 World Series championship and sending the St. Louis Cardinals home empty handed and heartbroken for the second time in nine years. If Boston wins tonight in Game 6, their fans will get to celebrate at Fenway Park in Boston for the first time since 1918 when we watch World Series St. Louis Cardinals vs Boston Red Sox Game 6 online free live streaming on Fox by following the links presented below.
The Red Sox had trailed in the World Series 2-1 after the bizarre obstruction play that concluded Game 3 in walk-off fashion. Facing two more games in St. Louis, it looked as if Boston would lose at least one of them and end up heading back to Fenway Park down 3-2 and facing elimination. Instead the Red Sox dug deep and found a way to silence the Cardinals bats to take a 3-2 advantage home and face two chances to win the World Series on Fox online.
The last time Boston won a World Series at Fenway Park as way back in 1918, nearly a century ago. Most fans weren’t alive then and have no memories of that momentous occasion so a win at Fenway today would be a celebration unlike any the city has seen before. The oldest ballpark in the league seems a fitting place to celebrate this year’s World Series no matter who wins. That celebration will happen tonight if the Red Sox can win their third straight game in the series.
A big reason for the Red Sox success has been the dominant play of designated hitter David Ortiz. He is 11 for 15 (.733 average) through five games and has hit two home runs and driven in six. He also has four walks and has been nearly impossible for Cardinals pitchers to get out. His outs have been loud, and Adam Wainwright even tried to alter his delivery to throw Ortiz off-balance.
Returning to Fenway means the designated hitter is back in play. Ortiz will return to that spot in the lineup, while Mike Napoli starts at first base. The Red Sox will also have Shane Victorino back in the lineup in right field after he sat the last two World Series games with a sore back. Jonny Gomes will also be in the lineup in left field while Daniel Nava sits when we watch 2013 World Series online free live streaming tonight.
John Lackey will be the starting pitcher for Boston tonight. He was the loser in Game 2 in Boston by a score of 4-2 and gave up three runs over 6 1/3 innings of work. His five hits and six strikeouts were good, but the Cardinals got key hits with runners in scoring position when they needed to. Lackey also pitched an inning of relief in Game 4 that the Red Sox won 4-2.
It seems only fitting that the Cardinals season rests upon the shoulders of rookie phenom Michael Wacha and his incredible postseason run. Wacha was nearly unhittable until the Red Sox got a pair of runs off him with a two-run homer by Ortiz in Game 2. Wacha still won that Game 4-2 over Lackey, but his pitch count rose fast and he was chased after six innings of work. The Cardinals will want to see Wacha be more effective with his pitches tonight and ultimately extend their season an extra game.
Tonight’s 2013 World Series Playoffs Game 6 between the St. Louis Cardinals and Boston Red Sox could see the Red Sox crowned champions when the first pitch is thrown at 8:07pm EST / 5:07 PST. The potential Fenway Park baseball postseason finale and celebration will be televised in high definition (HD) only on Fox with pre-game coverage kicking off 30 minutes earlier at 7:30pm EST. Be sure to check your local listings for what TV channel Fox is listed at.
The Fox network unfortunately does not provide the option of watching an official free online live streaming version of Game 6 at Fenway Park via a mobile phone, iPad, laptop or other Internet device at this time. Live real-time online audio coverage as well as online free live streaming video coverage of World Series Game 6 to baseball fans outside Canada and the United States is here that is essentially the same was watching Fox online free streaming on the Internet.
I called this World Series going to Game 7 before it started and am sticking with my gut. Wacha will lead the Cardinals to a win tonight and tomorrow night will see a new hero in Boston born.
