BOSTON — David Ortiz and the Boston Red Sox romped to their third World Series championship in 10 seasons, thumping October ace Michael Wacha and the St. Louis Cardinals 6-1 Wednesday night in Game 6.

Shane Victorino drove in four runs and John Lackey pitched shutout ball into the seventh inning as the Red Sox clinched a crown on their own field for the first time since 1918.

Fenway Park was rollicking, with the crowd standing from the very first pitch. Victorino lined a three-run double off the Green Monster in the third, and the cheers, chants and singing of “Sweet Caroline” only got louder after that.

Many fans paid more than $1,000 per ticket for this night, eager to be part of an in-house celebration that had been building for nearly a century.

Ortiz drew three walks and scored twice. He reached base a whopping 19 times in 25 plate appearances.
