The Cardinals and Red Sox are meeting in the World Series for the fourth time. St. Louis won in 1946 and '67, while Boston swept in 2004. The clubs have not played each other since June 2008, when the Cards won two of three at Fenway Park.
This is the 19th World Series for St. Louis (11-7) and the 12th for Boston (7-4). The Red Sox are playing in their third World Series in the past 10 years. Only the Cardinals have played in more in that span, reaching the Fall Classic four times.
Yadier Molina becomes the 9th player in Cardinal franchise history to appear in 4 World Series!

Wow, what a year! With all the injuries the Cards have had to play through (Carp, Motte, Garcia, Craig) who would have even thought about having the best record in the NL and tied for the best overall... Here are some other stats for the Cards this year:
What can you say about Matt Carpenter as well; He set a team record for most doubles (54) by a lefty and led the team and the majors in hits (199). (The first time a lefty led the NL in hits since Stan Musial in 1952.)
Yadier Molina's 44 doubles were the most by a catcher since Ivan Rodriguez's 47 in 1996.
The Cardinals had 36 wins from rookie picthers. The most since 1941.
Trevor Rosenthal became the first Cardinals pitcher post a season with no more than 20 walks and at least 100 strikeouts.
Adam Wainwright becomes the third Cardinal pitcher to lead the league in wins twice during their careers. Adam also led the league in 2009. (This year he was tied with Jordan Zimmermann of the Nationals.) Mort Cooper and Dizzy Dean were the other Cardinal pitchers.
This is the Cardinals 10th postseason appearance in the past 14 years, best in the NL. (The Braves are next with 9, but the next closest is the Giants with 5) The Yankees lead the AL with 12.
The Cards have the NL's best regular season winning percentage, .561, since the start of the 2000 season.
The Cards have the most postseason games (95) and won more postsesason games (62) than any NL team since 2000.
The Cardinals (97), Pirates (94) and Reds (90) matched the 2002 NL West (Diamondbacks, Giants,Dodgers) with three 90-win teams.
Tyler Lyons - with victories in his first two ML starts becomes the first starting pitcher in MLB history to go 7.0+ innings in his first two career games, allowing one run or less, four hits or less and one walk or less.
Best months! (1964-2013)
