For Boston Red Sox outfielder Shane Victorino, up until Game 6, his 2013 World Series had been less than spectacular. Not only was Victornio having a difficult time staying on the field, as he missed two of the first five games with injury, but when he was on the field the results were sub-par.
With the bases loaded for Victorino in the bottom of the third, the Flyin’ Hawaiian unloaded on a Michael Wacha pitch, sending it into left field where it banged off the Green Monster. A few more feet and Victorino would have had a grand slam, though, I doubt he or Red Sox nation were bummed about his three-run, bases clearing double which saw Victorino take third on a play at the plate.
St. Louis Cardinals starter Michael Wacha, prior to that swing, had only given up three runs during 27 postseason innings, two of which came in Wacha’s Game 2 start in the 2013 World Series.
