  • Description

    The Cincinnati Reds won the National League Championship on Wednesday (8 October) against the home team favourites, the Pittsburgh Pirates, and the Boston Red Sox clinched the American League the same day by beating the Auckland Athletics. The winning teams now meet in the World Series.

    This is the third time in the past five years that the Cincinnati Reds have reached the World Series. They beat the Pittsburgh Pirates five-two, thereby sweeping the National League play-offs by winning the first three out of five games.

    However, the CINCINNATI Reds were not boasting they could beat the Red Sox as the Champagne flowed in the club house after their victory. Clearly they respect their opponents.

    The Boston Red Sox beat the Auckland Athletics five-three to take the American League Championship with three straight victories.

    And on their return to Boston from Auckland, they were greeted by two thousand cheering fans at the airport. Carl Yastremski was the Red Sox hero, scoring and fielding in telling style.
