(SportsNetwork. Carmelo Anthony USA Jersey .com) - The Boston Red Sox havent clinched a World Series at home since Babe Ruth was on their roster. They can change that on Wednesday, as they attempt to secure a title at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918 and put the finishing touches on the St. Louis Cardinals in Game 6. Boston has won two World Series titles since that championship nearly 100 years ago, but both times the Red Sox have clinched on the road with its last title coming in 2007 against Colorado. Of course, the Red Sox ended their 86- year title drought with a four-game sweep of the Cardinals in 2004. Although they will be in front of what should be a raucous Fenway crowd, the Red Sox will still have their work cut out for them, as they go up against the best pitcher this postseason in 22-year-old righty Michael Wacha, who is 4-0 with a 1.00 ERA in these playoffs. Not to mention, the Cardinals are 8-1 in elimination games in the past three years. "Im going out there to try to keep the season alive," Wacha said. "Its must- win from here on out. Thats the mindset going in there: win a ballgame." Only two pitchers have won five times in a single postseason: Diamondbacks starter Randy Johnson in 2001, and Angels reliever Francisco Rodriguez in 2002. Both of those players teams won the World Series. Wacha earned the win in Game 2 of this series, as he held the Red Sox to a pair of runs and three hits in six innings. Hes only allowed three earned runs in 27 innings this postseason and has held opponents to just a .127 average, the fourth-lowest average in a single postseason among pitchers who logged at least 20 innings. "I guess its expected now," said Cardinals third baseman David Freese. "Man, hes a great talent. He works his tail off. He soaks it all in. And he obviously enjoys the moment." Opposing him, though, will be as battle-tested pitcher as there is in right- hander John Lackey, who has also been terrific this postseason, and, of course, clinched a World Series title for the Angels back in 2002 with a terrific Game 7 performance as a rookie. "I dont know what kind of guy (Wacha) is," Lackey said. "But personally, I was more excited about it than anything else as far as nerves, that sort of thing." Lackey, who suffered a hard-luck loss in Game 2, has held his opponents to four runs or less in 14 of his 15 career playoff starts. Only Andy Pettitte has more such starts (16) in the American League since 2002. "Hes been there before," teammate Ryan Dempster said. "He started Game 7 of the World Series as a rookie, so John Lackey is no stranger to big-game situations. Were glad that we have him on our side." Lackey was far better this season at Fenway, where he was 6-3 with a 2.47 ERA. Boston moved to the brink of a title on Monday, as Jon Lester retired 12 straight at one point and the Red Sox scored twice in the seventh to take a pivotal 3-1 victory. "I expect a lot of high things from myself, as do my teammates," Lester said. "You dont want to let those guys down. And were all trying to pull on the same rope and get to one common goal. And thats what makes this team pretty special." David Ortiz had another productive night for Boston, going 3-for-4 with an RBI to boost his average in the series to an otherworldly .733 (11-of-15). He matched Billy Hatchers World Series record by reaching base in nine straight plate appearances before lining out in the sixth. "Hopefully this will get over tomorrow, and theyll get to enjoy it like they always do," he said. "Party time." Ortiz, the last remaining veteran from the 2004 title team, doubled in a run in the first inning against Adam Wainwright (0-2), who settled in after another slow start but faltered late to suffer his second loss of the series. "We felt this was going to be a classic pitchers duel; it was shaping up that way. Fortunately we were able to break through," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Were excited about going home in the position we are." Like the setback in Game 1, the only run St. Louis mustered came on a Matt Holliday homer. "Our guys have been backed up against the wall before," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "This is something that isnt foreign to them. They know what they have to do." St. Louis found itself in this same position back in 2011, but rallied back to win Games 6 and 7. However, those games were played at Busch Stadium. In fact, since the 1979 Pittsburgh Pirates won the last two games in Baltimore, six straight teams have failed to overcome 3-2 deficits on the road. "Were not out of it," said Wainwright. "I fully believe that our team can go into Boston and win two games. In the postseason, pitching always rules." On the injury front Boston is expected to have right fielder Shane Victorino back in the lineup on Wednesday. Victorino had missed the last two games with a back injury. If necessary, Game 7 will be played Thursday at Fenway Park. DeMarcus Cousins Team USA Jersey .

"I could have been equipment manager but nooooo" from Lisa on Ice. Season 6, Episode 8.COLUMBUS, Ohio -- Relentless is the word Columbus forward Brandon Dubinsky chose to describe the surging Blue Jackets style of play. Dubinsky and Matt Calvert each had a goal and assist to lead Columbus to a team-record eighth-straight win -- the longest active streak in the league -- with a 5-2 victory over the Philadelphia Flyers on Thursday night in the franchises 1,000th game. Jack Johnson, Derek MacKenzie and Nathan Horton also scored for Columbus. The Blue Jackets played their inaugural season in 2000 and has only made the playoffs once, but are finally showing real signs of promise. "Theres a confidence in the room now," coach Todd Richards said. "I think there is an understanding of how we need to play, what we need to do as a group to have success." The offence has come on of late, but the backbone has been Sergei Bobrovsky, last seasons winner of the Vezina Trophy, which goes to the leagues top goalie. Bobrovsky finished with 26 saves in his first game against his former club to earn his seventh win in a row since returning from a groin injury. "Its everybody from Bob all the way out that are contributing," Dubinsky said. The Blue Jackets closed out the Flyers with four straight goals to improve to a league-best 9-0-1 record in January. They are currently holding an Eastern Conference playoff spot. "If you look at the standings we are still right there," Dubinsky said. "By no means can we be satisfied. Obviously its a big accomplishment. We are happy, we are going to enjoy it tonight. We are going to come to work tomorrow and get ready for a tough game." Brayden Schenn and Vincent Lecavalier scored for the Flyers, playing the second of an unscheduled back-to-back set after a snowstorm in Philadelphia pushed their game, a 3-2 loss to Carolina, to Wednesday. Philadelphia is 2-4-2 since winning 10 of 13. Coach Craig Berube said the Flyers recent struggles are because of poor execution inside their blue line. "It starts in our own end breaking the puck out," he said. "We are not doing a very good job of it. We end up spending too much time in our own end." Backup Ray Emery got the nod in goal instead of Steve Mason and had 34 stops. Mason, acquired from the Blue Jackets in 2012, played against the Hurricanees and has yet to face his former team in two visits to Columbus. Magic Johnson USA Jersey. The home crowd chided the former rookie of the year with chants of "We want Mason!" during the second and third periods. The Flyers fell behind 1-0 at 8:20. Johnsons shot from the right boards bounced off the legs of Luke Schenn and eluded Emery for his third of the season. Brayden Schenn tied it 1:56 in on a nice individual effort. He stripped the puck from Ryan Murray at the Columbus blue line, then cut in on Bobrovsky, eventually scoring on his third rapid-fire shot for his 14th. Lecavalier made it 2-1 just under six minutes later with his 11th, blasting a shot from the slot on the power play after a nice passing combination. The Blue Jackets responded with goals 4:49 apart to regain the lead, then added two more in the third period. "Were slowly getting the feeling in the room that no matter what teams throw at us we seem to dig deep and come up with a win," MacKenzie said. Corey Tropps forecheck squirted the puck free to Artem Anisimov, who centred a short-range pass to MacKenzie that he chipped in for his third at 11:24. Calvert was credited with the go-ahead score, his sixth, on a quirky power-play sequence. Philadelphias attempted sure clear, hit a glass partition and stayed in their zone. James Wisniewski got the puck and sent a hard pass from the left circle that hit Calverts turning skate in the crease and deflected into the goal. The play went to review and was upheld. Dubinsky beat Emery with a wrist shot from the slot for his 11th at 3:29 of the third. Horton scored a highlight-reel goal three minutes later, stepping around Andrej Meszaros at the boards and powering a high shot past Emery for his fourth. "This is something weve talked about as a group ... really trying to create an identity for our team and I think weve done that." NOTES: The Blue Jackets look to continue their record run Saturday against visiting Buffalo. ... Philadelphia is 6-4-0 in the second of back-to-back games. ... Columbus is 12-7-1 in the Metropolitan Division, while Philadelphia is 9-8-3. ... Arguably the Flyers best player this season, Mason recently signed a three-year contract extension. However, hes 1-2-1 with a 4.21 goals against average in his last five starts, getting pulled twice.
