Who else was watching tonight?
Remember a few weeks ago when we had that amazing night -- heck, amazing 10 minutes -- of baseball to end the regular season? Well, the various division and championship series were pretty good, too. And tonight was Game 6 of the World Series. The Rangers had played amazing baseball to lead the series three games to two.
Tonight's game went back and forth through nine innings but with a three-run 7th, it looked like the Cardinals were done for. Sure enough, the Rangers were one strike away from winning their first-ever World Series title, but the Cardinals rallied in the 9th and 10th inning and eventually won in the 11th to force Game 7.
Here's the Associated Press:
ST. LOUIS -- David Freese homered to lead off the bottom of the 11th inning, and the St. Louis Cardinals forced the World Series to a Game 7 by rallying from two-run deficits against the Texas Rangers in the 9th and 10th on Thursday night.
Freese hit a two-run triple just over a leaping Nelson Cruz to tie the score 7-7 in the ninth inning against Neftali Feliz. Then, after Josh Hamilton put Texas ahead with a two-run homer in the 10th off Jason Motte, Ryan Theriot hit an RBI groundout in the bottom half and Lance Berkman tied it 9-9 with a single.
Game 7 is on Friday night. Go Cardinals!
