Game 6: Napoli delivers, Rangers and Cards tied
Mike Napoli’s run-scoring single just inside the right field line gave Texas a 3-2 lead in the fourth inning.
St. Louis handed the Rangers a leadoff baserunner when shortstop Rafael Furcal and left fielder Matt Holliday botched Nelson Cruz’s popup. Neither took charge, and the ball popped out of Holliday’s glove when he reached out at the last moment. It was probably Holliday’s ball. He was charged with an error that allowed Cruz to reach second. Cruz scored on Napoli’s single.
It was Napoli’s 10th RBI of the World Series.
Moments later, Napoli twisted his ankle when he went into second awkwardly. He got caught in between sliding and going in standing up. Napoli, who appears on his way to Series MVP honors if Texas wins, was writhing in pain at first but walked it off and stayed in the game.
Holliday with a late, high, hard takeout slide on Elvis Andrus in the fourth to prevent a double play. Probably could have been called an automatic DP _ it was borderline at best.
Not necessarily dirty. But not necessarily legal, either.
Garcia left with the score tied at 2, but he was missing the command that made him so effective in Game 2. He was helped by two double plays and a couple of wide strike calls from plate umpire Gary Cederstrom. Texas squandered a great chance to build a comfortable lead in the first inning.
Plenty of Rangers fans at Busch Stadium, hoping to see their team win its first World Series crown. A little surprising, considering how much St. Louis loves its Cardinals.
