In 1918, the Red Sox made their third Fall Classic in four years, and triumphed over the (still luckless) Chicago Cubs in a six-game World Series. Babe Ruth’s ridiculous streak of consecutive World Series scoreless innings pitched ended at 29 2/3. The pundits – who like their modern-day version, didn’t know much – predicted that the Sox wouldn’t stop winning titles. But a tortuous wait of 86 years was about to begin. Though we hate to bring back bad memories on Fenway’s birthday, we should note that the Sox haven’t wrapped up a World Series at Fenway Park since 1918.
