World Series Game 6: David Freese Completes Unbelievable Comeback

Just your standard down-to-your-last-strike-twice-in-the-World-Series. Move along. Nothing to see here. Nothing at all.

The Rangers had the lead in the first, then they gave it up in the bottom of the first. Then the Rangers took the lead in the second, added on in the fourth and fifth, and poured it on in the seventh. When the Cardinals came up in the ninth inning, they were down by two. When David Freese came up, he got behind in the count, 1-2, with two men on.

He hit a triple to tie the game.

Then the Rangers came right back with a two-run homer from Josh Hamilton in the top of the tenth. And again, they had the Cardinals down to their final strike. Lance Berkman was up. He tied the game.

Jake Westbrook came into the game for the top of the 11th, possibly after signing his un-retirement papers to make it official, and after allowing the required hit to Mike Napoli, he got out of the inning by getting pinch-hitter Esteban German to ground out. German was hitting for Scott Feldman, which meant the Rangers had to go back to their bullpen. They paid a pretty substantial price to acquire Koji Uehara at the trading deadline, but in his place on the roster is now held by Mark Lowe.

Lowe had to face David Freese.

The Cardinals won Game 6 on a Freese home run, after Freese tripled to tie the game.

Tonight, Stan Musial might ask David Freese for an autograph. The Cardinals won 10-9 to win Game 6 of the World Series, forcing a final game on Friday night.
