Game 7: Close call helps Cards extend lead to 5-2
Question of the Day
A close call goes to the Cardinals in the fifth inning.
With first base open, Texas intentionally walked David Freese to load the bases with two outs. Scott Feldman fell behind 3-1 on Yadier Molina, then threw a strike. The full-count pitch also looked like a strike, right on the outside corner, but this time Feldman didn’t get the call from plate umpire Jerry Layne.
Ball four, 4-2 Cardinals.
St. Louis leads 5-2.
Texas pitchers have issued 40 walks in the World Series, tying the record set by the 1997 Florida Marlins.
Allen Craig makes a leaping catch at the left-field fence in the sixth, probably taking a home run away from Nelson Cruz. Chris Carpenter works a 1-2-3 sixth, and the Cardinals are nine outs from their second World Series championship in six seasons.
Big sequence in the top of the fifth inning.
Ian Kinsler hit a leadoff single and was sacrificed to second by Elvis Andrus. Carpenter fell behind 3-1 on Josh Hamilton _ the only strike may have been a generous call. Hamilton then swung at an inside pitch that might have been ball four and lofted a foul popup wide of third. Freese caught it at the dugout railing for the second out.
Freese had a similar chance Thursday night but was unable to make the play.
Michael Young struck out to end the inning.
