It all comes down to this: World Series Game 7. St. Louis continued the theme of their 2011 season, coming back at the last minute to win. With a walk off home run from David Freese, who also tied the game with a two-out, two-run triple in the ninth inning, the Cardinals beat the Rangers 10-9 in eleven innings.
If you missed the game, craziness ensued to finish the game. After the Rangers took a 7-4 lead in the 7th inning, things seemed over. Fans were leaving Busch Stadium and the crowd remaining was silent. Allen Craig hit a solo home run in the eighth inning, bringing the Cardinals to within 2, before Freese's two out homer tied it up in the 9th.
But, the madness continued into the extra innings. Texas scored two runs on a Josh Hamilton home run in the 10th inning, again seeming to put the game away. Some great small ball play brought the Cardinals back, tying it up again in the bottom half of the 10th, before they would go on to win it in the 11th.
Which, brings it back to the final game of the Series. It's a winner take all showdown, with the National League's win in the All Star game giving the home field advantage to the Cardinals.
Enjoy the game!
