For the fourth time in the history of the World Series, the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals are the final two teams left. In Major League Baseball, few teams have had greater success in the Fall Classic than these teams and since 2004, only the New York Yankees have been able to win two titles aside from the Red Sox and Cardinals.
These two teams first met in the World Series in 1946. Behind the managerial skills of Eddie Dyer, the Cardinals won the series in seven games. The Red Sox biggest star, Ted Williams, played injured throughout the series and failed to put up the numbers the team and its fans were hoping for. Had Williams played better, Boston may have walked away as the winners.
In their second World Series meeting, St. Louis again walked away as the champions. This meeting occurred in 1967 and Red Schoendienst made all the right moves throughout the season to get the Cardinals title. In this seven game series, it was one pitcher that earned three of the Cardinals four victories, Bob Gibson. Gibson started games one, four and seven for the Cardinals and was dominate in each appearance. In the clincher, Gibson outdueled Boston ace, Jim Lonberg, and earned MVP honors in the process.
By the time the Red Sox and Cardinals met for the third time in their World Series history in 2004, Boston hadn't won a World Series in 85 years. The franchise was looking to break the Curse of the Bambino and with a star-studded team that included David Ortiz, Manny Ramirez, Curt Schilling and Pedro Martinez. The Red Sox picked up the four-game sweep to snap their drought, led by the MVP performance of Ramirez.
In the history of the World Series, only one team has won more championships than the Cardinals and no National League teams have more titles. The Cardinals have won 11 titles and have finished as the runner up on seven occasions. Since 2000, the Cardinals are 2-1 in World Series play, losing to the Red Sox and beating the Detroit Tigers (2006, 4-1) and Texas Rangers (2011, 4-3). The Red Sox (seven World Series titles in 11 opportunities) will be playing in their third World Series since 2000 and are currently 2-0, beating the Cardinals and Colorado Rockies (2007, 4-0).
The 2013 World Series doesn't have the intriguing storylines that there has been in years passed, but it features the two best teams in the league this season. St. Louis finished the regular season with the best record in the NL and the Red Sox finished with the best record in the entire league. During the season, each team has been led by a large core of players, rather than just a single star. In the playoffs, the Red Sox have been led by memorable grand slams from David Ortiz and Shane Victorino, while the Cardinals have been led by Carlos Beltran and Adam Wainwright.
The 2013 World Series will kick off on Wednesday, October 23rd from Fenway Park in Boston.
