Albert Pujols didn’t like the call on strike three to start the sixth, but it appeared he was fortunate not to get punched out on the previous pitch.
Boy, the Cardinals are really making a mess for themselves on defense. Not sure if they’re tight, cold, rusty or what.
Young followed with an RBI double to give Texas a 4-3 lead.
Interesting little chess match there in the top of the fifth after Young’s RBI double. Two outs later, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa intentionally walked the No. 7 hitter, Napoli, who has 10 RBIs in the World Series. That put runners at the corners for pinch-hitter David Murphy _ with pitcher Colby Lewis on deck.
Washington put Yorvit Torrealba in the on-deck circle, and Holland began warming up hastily in the bullpen. La Russa, however, wasn’t fooled by the decoys. Fernando Salas pitched around Murphy, loading the bases with an unintentional intentional walk. Forced to make a decision, Washington stayed with Lewis, who struck out to end the inning.
The Rangers still lead 4-3.
