A Game 6 for the Ages…

October 27, 2011

Hometown hero David Freese’s walk off home run capped a thrilling Game 6 World Series victory by the St. Louis Cardinals.  This 11 inning game featured several lead changes and plenty of homers.  This was the 1st ever World Series game to have multiple home runs in extra innings.  Twice the Texas Rangers were 1 strike away from their 1st World Series title.  Each time however, the scrappy Cardinals found ways to survive.  In the Bottom of the 9th down 2, Freese hit a 2 RBI triple to force extra innings.  In the 10th, Lance Berkman’s RBI single tied the game yet again, which lead to Freese’s heroics.  The Cardinals became the 1st team in World Series history to overcome a 2 run deficit twice in a game.  It marked the 5th time they came from behind to tie the score.  After what some consider to be one of the greatest games in World Series history, the Cardinals and Rangers have to muster up what little energy they have left to play for the title in what is sure to be an epic Game 7.  Tomorrow’s game will once again feature both clubs’ aces in Chris Carpenter and C.J. Wilson.  Expect the unexpected, as both teams will surely leave everything they have left at Busch Stadium.  Can the Cardinals finish off the Rangers after a captivating Game 6 victory?  Or will the Rangers find a way to pick up the pieces after losing a game they easily could have won?  I predict the Cardinals will defeat the Rangers to capture their 11th championship in front of Cardinal nation despite a valiant effort from their opponent.
