(CNN) - The Red Sox won the World Series at Fenway Park for the first time since 1918.
The final score was 6 to 1 against the St. Louis Cardinals in game six Wednesday. It's the team's third World Series title in nine years.
Fans took to the streets around Fenway Park to celebrate the win late into the night.
"Awesome, Ortiz hands down MVP," one man said. "Finally Steven Drew getting on base even, really just awesome all throughout. Boston Strong, everyone on the team."
The Red Sox win over the Cardinals marked a high point in an otherwise tragic year for the city of Boston.
Six months ago, at an event the city is known for, the Boston Marathon, twin bombs killed three people and injured more than 200.
The term Boston Strong took on new meaning as the notoriously resilient city came together to support the victims.
On April 20, just five days after the attack, the Red Sox paid special tribute to the victims and survivors.
Throughout the season, that support has been unwavering.
"The stuff that happened to this city, we wanted to do something special and make people proud of their team in the toughest of times," Dustin Pedroia said. "Hopefully we did that."
"First of all, I want to say, this is for you, Boston," David Ortiz said. "You guys deserve it. We've been through a lot this year, and this is for all of you and the families who struggled through the bombings this year."
