Game 6: Twice down to last strike, Cards win 10-9

David Freese homered in the 11th inning to give the Cardinals a 10-9 victory over Texas in Game 6 of the World Series, capping one of the wildest, most exciting finishes in baseball history.

As Freese’s shot cleared the center field fence, Fox broadcaster Joe Buck reprised the famous call by his late father, Jack, on Kirby Puckett’s homer to win Game 6 of the 1991 World Series for Minnesota.

“We will see you tomorrow night!”

Nice tribute.

Twice, the Rangers were one strike away from their first championship. How do they recover from this?

It’s tied again! Unbelievable!

The Cardinals just won’t let this wild World Series end.

Twice down to their final strike, they’ve tied it each time. Once in the ninth inning on Freese’s two-run triple off Neftali Feliz, then again in the 10th on Lance Berkman’s RBI single off Scott Feldman.

After the Rangers were oh-so-close to their first World Series crown in the ninth, Josh Hamilton hit a two-run homer in the 10th to put Texas ahead again, 9-7.

But the Rangers couldn’t hold it.

Jake Westbrook worked a scoreless inning, and we’re headed to the bottom of the 11th tied at 9.

Extra innings!

Down to their final strike in the ninth, the Cardinals got a two-run triple from NLCS MVP David Freese off Neftali Feliz to tie the score at 7.
