Game 6: Twice down to last strike, Cards win 10-9
Question of the Day
Texas was excruciatingly close to its first World Series crown. But the Rangers responded right away. Josh Hamilton, the hobbling star who hadn’t homered the entire postseason, hit a two-run shot off Motte in the 10th to put Texas ahead 9-7.
What a game! What a Series!
And what an incredible life story for Hamilton, whose career was derailed by drug and alcohol addiction. This could be the capper. One Hollywood movie may not be enough to tell this comeback story.
Headed to the bottom of the 10th. Darren Oliver on to try to save it for Texas.
It’s a mystery why manager Ron Washington didn’t go to closer Feliz in the eighth, but he’ll surely be on in the ninth to try to close it out.
Allen Craig homers off Derek Holland with one out in the eighth inning and St. Louis trims its deficit to 7-5. That’s the first run the Cardinals have managed off Holland, who pitched a gem to win Game 4. The young lefty was just lifted for Adams, with pinch-hitter Gerald Laird coming up. Laird was replaced by pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso, who reached on an infield single when shortstop Elvis Andrus made an ill-advised throw to first rather than going to second for the force.
Jon Jay followed with a single that loaded the bases.
Holland stands to win in relief. He started and won Game 4 on Sunday, taking a two-hit shutout into the ninth inning for a 4-0 victory.
