Cardinals win amazing Game 6 of World Series

David Freese

By Matt Snyder


ST. LOUIS -- The never-say-die Cardinals have done it again. They came back from a two-run deficit with their backs against the wall not once, but twice. First in the bottom of the ninth inning, and then again in the bottom of the 10th. It was an amazing game, one that will go down in history.

Hero: David Freese came through with the two biggest hits of the game -- a tying triple in the ninth and the game-winning bomb in the 11th. Is there any question who the hero is?

Goat: I'm going with Neftali Feliz and Nelson Cruz. Feliz shouldn't have gotten himself in trouble in the ninth and Cruz needs a better effort on that Freese double. He probably could have caught it, and if he did, the Rangers would be celebrating a championship right now.

Turning point: Wow, I really have to pick one? I'd say the second time the Cardinals tied it. Once, the Rangers bounced back immediately, but it had to be demoralizing to the Rangers that it happened two consecutive innings.

It was over when ... Freese hit the homer. Obviously.

Next: This one was so fun, let's do it again, Friday night at 7:05 p.m. CT in St. Louis. The winner takes the World Series championship.

Cardinals win amazing Game 6 of World Series

First off: nice comments from a "elitist" Sox fan (wink wink).  Glad you east coasters are managing to stay tuned to this thoroughly entertaining World Series.

Second: You're saying Busch Statdim is "tiny"????  You've BEEN to Fenway right?  LOL  You've saw the homers fly out of Arlington, right??

Cardinals win amazing Game 6 of World Series

As a Boston fan for over 45 years I thought I'd seen everything.Nevertheless, tonight's game was the best world series game's I've ever seen!Freese tied the game in the 9th with a triple(not a double).He had only 1 triple all season.Then he win's it in the 11th with a homer-he hit 10 all season.I don't remember 2 AB's of such clutch hitting.To top it off the guy 's hometown is St.Louis!You couldn't make this up;nobody would believe it.This is game/series that one would expect to come  from Hollywood.

Twice Albert came up to bat for what could have been his last AB in STL.Well, guess what-He get's to hit again tomorw in that tiny ballpark against a pitching staff that is exhausted.I expect Albert to rise to the occasion & the Cards to in it on mojo alone!OK, & about 9 runs.

"I don't believe what I just saw!"

Haven't had so much fun watching a World Series game since the Twins won games 6 & 7 of the '91 Series.

Wow.
