BACK TO BOSTON: If the Red Sox win tonight or tomorrow, it will be the first time since 1918 that the team has clinched a World Series at Fenway Park. The Red Sox past two World Series wins each finished on the road.

BACK IN THE LINEUP: Playing with a DH in an American League park, the Red Sox are able to put Mike Napoli back in the lineup as protection for red-hot David Ortiz. Boston also got Shane Victorino back from a back injury. The Cardinals are able to DH hobbled RBI man Allen Craig, who’s had trouble moving but still managed to play first base in Game 5.

BACK ON THE MOUND: Cardinals rookie starter Michael Wacha is the 17th pitcher in baseball history to win at least four games in a single postseason. He’s allowed just three earned runs through 27 innings in the playoffs. Red Sox veteran starter John Lackey pitched an inning of relief on Sunday, which was his throw day. He won the series-clinching game of the 2002 World Series.
