The St. Louis Cardinals have won the 2011 World Series as they defeated the Texas Rangers 6-2 in Game 7.

The Cardinals got contributions yet again from Allen Craig and David Freese. Freese, who was named the World Series MVP, tied the game with a 2-run double in the bottom of the first inning after Josh Hamilton and Michael Young hit back-to-back RBI doubles in the top of the first. Freese set a new postseason record with his 20th and 21st RBI of the playoffs. Freese becomes the 6th player to win the MVP title for both the LCS and the World Series. Allen Craig hit a solo home run in the third inning to give the Cardinals a 3-2 lead. That was Craig’s 4th home run of the postseason and 3rd of the World Series.

Chris Carpenter started the game for the Cards and gave his team 6 solid innings giving up 6 hits and 2 runs with 5 strikeouts in his start coming off of just 3 days of rest. The rest of the bullpen took the remaining 3 innings, shutting out the Rangers.

For the Rangers this was a tough loss especially when twice in game 6 they were just one strike away from winning the World Series. But all credit goes to the St. Louis Cardinals for fighting on the final games of the regular season just to make the postseason and then knocking off the Phillies, Brewers, and Rangers to capture their World Title. It is the 11th World Series title for the Cardinals.
