It all comes down to this. The St. Louis Cardinals square off against the Boston Red Sox in a battle of two of baseball’s most storied franchises, playing for their chance to bring home the grandest of baseball prizes.
St. Louis, looking for their 12th world series title and second in 3 seasons, after knocking off the Pirates and Dodgers to bring home the National League Crown. Boston is looking to bring home its first trophy since 2007 after defeating the Tampa Bay Rays and Detroit Tigers to clinch the American League Pennant.
The first game kicks off tonight, in what’s sure to be a classic series, starting in Boston. Home field advantage is sure to play some part, with both fan bases hoping to be their team’s motivator. The Red Sox claim home field advantage because the American League won this summer’s All-Star Game, which gives them a slight edge heading into the series.
