The 109th World Series of Baseball starts today as the Boston Red Sox host the St Louis Cardinals.

The series pits the two teams with the best record in the MLB going head-to-head. Both teams finished first in their leagues with 97 wins and 65 losses.

Boston has won seven World Series titles but hasn't been victorious since sweeping the Colorado Rockies in 2007, while the Cardinals have won 11 crowns with their last coming just two years ago against the Texas Rangers.

The Cardinals will start the series with Adam Wainwight on the mound, he's been one of the best pitchers this season, recording 19 wins....
