ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Hours after David Freese's home run plunked
down on the grass patch beyond the center field wall, long after the
ballpark emptied, a message still burned bright on the scoreboard: "See
you TOMORROW NIGHT for Game 7 of the World Series!"
Whatever happens, whether the St. Louis Cardinals or Texas Rangers win, they'll have a hard time topping Thursday night.
"You had to be here to believe it," St. Louis manager Tony La Russa said.
one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, the Cardinals twice
rallied when they were down to their last strike of the season. First,
Freese saved them with a two-run triple in the ninth, then Lance Berkman
delivered a tying single in the 10th.
when Freese led off the bottom of the 11th with his shot to beat Texas
10-9 and stomped on the plate, this Game 6 had already been stamped
"Turned out to be one for the ages," said Daniel Descalso, who keyed a Cardinals comeback.
