World Series Game 6 discussion thread

If the Red Sox win tonight, it will be the first time they've clinched a championship at Fenway since 1918.

Jim Rogash

For the first time since 1975, a World Series will end at Fenway Park in Boston. Hopefully, tonight's affair will be a fraction as entertaining as the last time a Game 6 of the World Series was held here when Carlton Fisk waved a solo home run fair off the left field foul pole in the bottom of the twelfth inning for one of the most famous walk off hits in baseball history.

The pitching match up tonight is a rematch of Game 2 between Michael Wacha and John Lackey.
