After a wild topsy-turvy game 6, the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Texas Rangers in Game 7, 7-2, to win their 11th world championship. Chris Carpenter pitched well for the Cards, with another quality start. The Rangers are left devastated. They had two chances the night before to get one more strike, that would earn their first title. Yet those two opportunities went by the wayside, and despite an early 2-0 lead in Game 7, Texas could not hold on.
Many sportswriters claim this to be one of the most memorable world series ever. Not a bad argument, considering Game 6, and Albert Pujols hitting three home runs in game 3. Do you agree?
Game 6 World Series
- Texas Rangers at St. Louis Cardinals
- Time: 8:05 E.T.
- Channel: FOX
- Where: Busch Stadium (St. Louis)
- TEX: Colby Lewis (1-1) vs. STL: Jaime Garcia (0-2)
It comes down to Game 6 of World Series between the St. Louis Cardinals and the Texas Rangers. Texas has a 3-2 series lead, making this game, a possible clincher. After splitting the first two games in St. Louis, the Rangers took two out of three in Arlington (much to the pleasing of Nolan Ryan and the Bushes). What would a World Series championship mean to the Rangers? A whole bunch, considering they have no previous title to speak of, and they never even had a pennant, until last year. The Rangers have have had the most success in the history of their franchise these past two years. Now, is the time for those texans to win it all, tonight.
But a game 7 would be nice.
