The Red Sox are on the brink of winning their third World Series championship in 10 years and their first at home since 1918.
It’s the fourth time the two teams have met in the Fall Classic: The Cardinals won in 1946 and 1967, the Red Sox in 2004.
The Red Sox and Cardinals both finished the regular season 97-65, tying for the best record in the major leagues.
The Red Sox could become the second team ever to win the World Series one season after finishing in last place: the other was the 1991 Minnesota Twins.
