Game 6: Berkman homers, Cards and Rangers tied
Question of the Day
That early lead didn’t last long for Texas.
Ian Kinsler hit an RBI double in the second to tie it 2-all. Fox announcer Joe Buck says that was the Rangers’ first hit in the World Series with runners in scoring position and two outs.
Texas is trying to win its first World Series crown. St. Louis hopes to force the first decisive Game 7 in the Series since 2002.
Skip Schumaker scored on Berkman’s homer after reaching on a one-out single. Schumaker started in center field for the second straight game in place of slumping Jon Jay, who is 0 for 14 in the World Series.
Schumaker can be an offensive spark, and that’s why he’s in the No. 2 hole in the lineup. St. Louis needs to get some guys on in front of Pujols, Berkman and Matt Holliday so the Rangers are forced to pitch to them _ Pujols in particular.
Cardinals starter Jaime Garcia has walked the leadoff batter in each of the first two innings _ not the way you want to attack this Texas lineup. But he caught a break when Lewis bunted into a 5-6-4 double play in the second.
It actually wasn’t a bad bunt, but third baseman David Freese was right on top of Lewis, with no threat that he would do anything but bunt. Lewis needed to push the ball to the right side _ easier said than done for an American League pitcher who normally doesn’t hit.
Game 6 is under way, and the Cardinals are in immediate trouble.
Garcia issues a leadoff walk to Kinsler before Elvis Andrus singles to left-center, sending Kinsler to third. Josh Hamilton follows with an RBI single.
With runners at the corners, Garcia buckled down. He struck out Michael Young and Adrian Beltre before Nelson Cruz grounded out. Texas leads 1-0.
