    The 1918 Boston Red Sox season involved the Red Sox finishing 1st in the American League with a record of 75 wins and 51 losses. The season was cut short due to World War I. They defeated the Chicago Cubs in 6 games in the World Series. This would be the last World Series victory for the Red Sox until 2004, losing in the World Series in 1946, 1967, 1975, and 1986. It would be the last World Series victory for the Red Sox at Fenway Park until winning the Championship at home in 2013.

    Their pitching staff, led by Carl Mays and Bullet Joe Bush, allowed the fewest runs in the league. Babe Ruth was the fourth starter and also spent significant time in the outfield, as he was the best hitter on the team. He led the AL in home runs and slugging percentage.
