The 2013 World Series is officially set.

The Boston Red Sox joined the St. Louis Cardinals in the Fall Classic after beating the Detroit Tigers 5-2 on Saturday.

Shane Victorino boosted the Red Sox to the pennant with a clutch grand slam in the seventh inning of Saturday's Game 6. With the victory, the Red Sox won the ALCS 4-2 and set up a meeting between two of the most successful sports franchises of the past decade. 

Both teams have won two World Series titles since 2004, with the Red Sox actually sweeping the Cardinals in their epic '04 run. While many of the faces have changed, you can still expect plenty of drama on the diamond between these two clubs. 

The action begins in Boston on Wednesday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m. ET. Game 2 will be played on Thursday before the series shifts to St. Louis for Games 3 and 4. 

Here is the complete schedule for the entire series:

World Series

If there isn't a sweep like in '04, the two will play Game 5 on Monday in St. Louis. Then, if necessary, the series will head back to Boston to close out the season. 

The Red Sox, who won the World Series in 2004 and 2007, get home-field advantage because of the American League's victory in the 2013 All-Star Game. 

While pitching typically reigns supreme in October, this series could turn into an offensive battle. 

The Red Sox led the MLB in runs (853) this season, while finishing second in batting average (.211) and first in on-base percentage (.349). The Cardinals also boast a powerful lineup, as they finished third in the MLB in runs (783) and fourth in batting average (.269). 

Of course, with pitchers like Adam Wainwright, Jon Lester and the red-hot Michael Wacha on the mound, runs will be hard to come by.
