Cardinals Win In Walk-Off Fashion 10-9 To Force Game 7 Of World Series
It was a wild game in St. Louis that ended with a walk off home run in extras as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Texas Rangers 10-9 in game 6 of the World Series.
This games starting pitchers were the same as Game 2, Colby Lewis and Jamie Garcia. Both were lights out in their first meeting but the same cannot be said for this game. Garcia was put on a short leash and after having a shaky 3 innings giving up 2 runs on 5 hits he was gone from the game. Seeing that Texas had the lead in the series Colby Lewis didn’t quite duplicate his game 2 performance pitching 5 1/3 giving up 3 runs.
As far as the offense goes, in numerous innings the Rangers would score a run and then the following inning the Cardinals would answer with a run of their own. That would continue til the 7th inning when Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz would hit back to back home runs. Ian Kinsler would add another run with an RBI single.
Cardinals would make noise in the 8th with an Allen Craig Home run and it looked bleek in the 9th as David Freese was down to his last strike but he would tie things up with a Triple scoring Albert Pujols and Lance Berkman.
In the Tenth, Texas would answer right back with a 2 run blast from Josh Hamilton. The Cardinals would again be down to their last strike but would tie things up again thanks to Lance Berkman.
Then in the 11th the man who tied it in the 9th would win it in the 11th as David Freese would hit a walk off Home Run to win it and send this series to a game 7.
