BOSTON —The Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals tied for the best record in baseball in the regular season.

Each team led its league in runs, with solid starting pitching and a dominant closer emerging midway through the season.

But if you’re looking for a favorite in the World Series that begins at Fenway Park on Wednesday, it’s got to be the Red Sox — by a whisker.

Boston’s dugout is overflowing with facial hair these days, part of a bonding ritual that began when Jonny Gomes showed up scruffy at spring training.
