Result: Boston Red Sox win eighth World Series

Boston Red Sox defeat St Louis Cardinals to win their eighth World Series.

Boston Red Sox have clinched their eighth World Series by beating St Louis Cardinals 6-1 in game six at Fenway Park.

Three wins in a row has seen John Farrell's men, who were 2-1 down heading into game four of the best-of-seven series, secure the title on their home patch for the first time since 1918.

With the bases loaded at the bottom of the third, a double from Shane Victorino allowed Jacoby Ellsbury, David Ortiz and Jonny Gomes to cross the plate for a 3-0 lead.

A home run from Stephen Drew increased their comfort, before Ellsbury and Ortiz all but confirmed victory in the fourth innings.

Daniel Descalso clawed a run back at the top of the seventh, but once again the Red Sox shut the Cardinals down at the close, with Koji Uehara completing the job.
