The Week In Review: It’s the World Series
Inside Flipboard / October 25, 2013
It’s fall, the air is crisp, and the lights to baseball’s biggest stage are on: it’s time for the World Series. This year’s Fall Classic is between the American League’s Boston Red Sox and the National League’s St. Louis Cardinals—the two best teams in their respective leagues, each of whom boasted records of 97-65.
This year, the Red Sox carry the offensive edge with heavy hitters like David Ortiz and Dustin Pedroia, who made their appearances known during their team’s 8-1 victory on Wednesday. But the Cardinals are not to be overlooked: despite their error-prone game one outing, they’ve got some of the Major League’s hottest pitchers in the form of Joe Kelly and rookie sensation Michael Wacha.
Baseball fans will note this to be a rematch of the 2004 World Series, the one that saw Boston sweep the Cardinals in four games. Only, there’ll be no sweep this year. St. Louis just tied the series with Thursday night’s victory, winning 4-2. Game three takes place this Saturday with the remainder of games set to last into next week.
