Boston rejoices in World Series victory at home

BOSTON (AP) - Red Sox fans are celebrating the first time their team has captured a World Series title at home since Babe Ruth was in the lineup.

 

Wednesday's historic victory sent fans spilling into the streets after Boston's 6-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6.

 

The win capped an emotional season for the Red Sox, one heavy with the reminder of the Boston Marathon bombings in April, which left three people dead and more than 260 wounded. Players wore "Boston Strong" logos on their left sleeves and a giant "B Strong" logo was mowed into Fenway's outfield.

 

"We needed this," says Boston resident Mark Porcaro.

 

Cardinals fan Ed Moreland says his team tried hard to take the series but "Boston was just a bit stronger."
