BOSTON (AP) _ At least one cardinal is rooting for the Red Sox in the World Series.

The Roman Catholic Archbishop of Boston, Cardinal Sean O’Malley, is wagering that the Boston Red Sox will beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the series that begins Wednesday at Fenway Park.

If the Red Sox win, St. Louis Archbishop Robert Carlson will donate $100 to Boston Catholic Charities.

Should the Cardinals win, O’Malley will donate $100 to the St. Louis archdiocese’s charity fund.

Catholic Charities in Boston and St. Louis provide a spectrum of social service care to thousands of people.
