After 162 games of regular season action and making it through the American League Division Series and Championship Series, the Boston Red Sox advanced to the World Series with their 5-2 win over the Detroit Tigers. Victorino's grand slam in the 7th inning was the highlight of the game bringing in Gomes, Bogaerts and Ellsbury. They will now be the home team in a series against the National League opponent, the St. Louis Cardinals. As we prepare for what will be an exciting series between the best teams in Major League Baseball, let's take a look back on the history of the game and what to expect in this series.
In the long history of the sport, the AL has a large advantage over the NL in overall World Series victories with 62, compared to just 46 for the NL. Since 2000, the NL has been working to bring their total up, as a team from this league has won the World Series seven times including the past three. In the last three years, the San Francisco Giants have won two titles while the St. Louis Cardinals claimed the other.
The New York Yankees, a member of the AL, own the most titles in MLB history with 27, more than double the amount of the second place Cardinals. The Yankees also own the record for the most World Series losses with 13, one more than the Giants and the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Since the first World Series was played in 1903, just twice in the history of the league has a championships series not been played. In 1904, the NL Champion New York Giants declined to play against the Boston Americans, the representative from the AL. The only other time the series wasn't played was in 1994 when a strike ended the season prematurely.
In what can be considered interesting championship history, just two MLB teams have never even reached the World Series, including one from each league. In the NL, it is the Washington Nationals that have never advanced while the AL representative is the Seattle Mariners. Six other MLB teams have failed to win a title even though they reached the series. Three of those teams currently reside in the AL including the Houston Astros, Texas Rangers and Tampa Bay Rays, while the other three are the Milwaukee Brewers, San Diego Padres and Colorado Rockies.
When it comes to AL teams winning the World Series, the Yankees are in first place with their 27 wins, while the Oakland Athletics have the second most wins with nine. Next up are the Red Sox, who have won seven titles in 11 attempts while the Tigers and their four titles in 11 opportunities have the fourth most wins.
The World Series will begin in Boston at Fenway Park on October 23 and game two will follow the next night. For game three, the World Series will take its traveling road show to St. Louis on October 26. Game four will occur on October 27 and if necessary, game five will be held the following night. If the series needs to return to Boston, games six and seven will be held on October 30 and 31.
