No one was happier than the entire city of Boston after the Red Sox clinched a Game Six win against the St. Louis Cardinals to take the World Series. This was the first time the Sox had won the title in Fenway since 1918.
The game ended 6-1 after a terrific pitching performance by from Lackey. David Ortiz, better known as Big Papi, gave an emotional speech to fans after the game, reports ESPN.
He said, “This is for you, Boston. You guys deserve it. We’ve been through a lot this year, and this is for all of you and all those families who struggled.”
The players wore “Boston Strong” logos on their left sleeves.
When fans celebrated in the streets later, they broke into an impromptu chant of “Boston Strong” at the end line of the marathon route, in memoriam to the three people who were killed and 260 wounded in the Islamic terrorist bombing of the Boston Marathon on April 15.
