New numbers from the social network show that the Red Sox out-buzzed the Cardinals 62 percent to 38 percent in terms of Facebook interactions.

PageData shows that as of 10:45 a.m. PST, the Red Sox official Facebook page has added more than 12,500 fans today.

Talk about the Red Sox generated more than 5 million interactions from more than 2.6 million people on the Facebook platform. Men aged 25 to 34 were the most active last night.
