A World Series Stunner

A World Series Stunner

What thought to have been an opportunity for the American League baseball team Texas Rangers to go on to win their very first World Series turned out to be now a stunning National League baseball team St. Louis Cardinals STUNNER  forcing a game 7 tonight in the World Series based on a David Freese’s home run.

From the AP:”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.

In 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.”

I wish I had watched it, even though I had no dog in this fight, it is sure fun to see major league baseball at its very best. Best wishes to the two teams for tonight’s deciding game number 7. Tonight I will watch this game to see what will happen.
