Game 6: Young’s double puts Rangers ahead 4-3
Question of the Day
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 Holliday so the Rangers are forced to pitch to them _ Pujols in particular.
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.
Clear skies in St. Louis tonight, after Game 6 of the World Series was postponed a day because of rain. The temperature is 56 degrees with little wind. Not a bad night to play ball.
Much has been made about who would pitch for the Cardinals in a potential Game 7. The rainout gives manager Tony La Russa a chance to bring back ace Chris Carpenter on three days’ rest if he wants. But they have to get there first, and nobody is more aware of that than La Russa. He refused to look beyond Game 6 during his pregame news conference today.
Garcia is at his best in Busch Stadium, while Lewis has been Texas’ most reliable postseason starter the past two years. He is 4-1 with a 2.22 ERA in seven starts, and it was Lewis who threw a gem to close out the New York Yankees in Game 6 of the 2010 AL championship series.
