Red Sox at home vs. Cardinals on the road
The Red Sox went 53-28 at Fenway Park this season, good for a winning percentage of .654. Their 53 home wins were the highest in the American League, third overall in the majors. Playing at home was key for the Red Sox in the postseason, as they won four out of the five games they played in Boston. The Red Sox are 4-0 in their last four World Series games at home, sweeping the Cardinals and the Rockies on their way to World Series titles in 2004 and 2007.
The Cardinals, while not as good as they are at home, have won more than lost on the road this year, posting a record of 43-38 and a winning percentage of .531. They had the third-best road record in the NL in 2013. The Cardinals are 2-5 on the road in their last three World Series trips in 2004, 2006, and 2011.
