Cardinals Win Thriller, Force Game 7
The 2011 MLB World Series has had plenty of theatrics. Game 6 in St. Louis will go down in the history books. The Cardinals were down to their last strike twice Thursday night, only to win in 11 innings. David Freese hit the game-winning walk-off homerun to propel the Cardinals to a 10-9 victory over the Texas Rangers, forcing a decisive Game 7 tonight.
The final score cannot describe the tale of one of the most amazing world series games ever played.
In their victory, the Cardinals became the first team to come back from two 2+ run deficits in the 9th and 10th inning of a WS.
The game was the first time a team scored in the 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th innings of a WS.
The Rangers became the first team in WS history to have 3 blown saves in a single game.
