Game 7: Close call helps Cards extend lead to 6-2
Question of the Day
St. Louis leads 5-2.
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.
Feldman has replaced Texas starter Matt Harrison in the bottom of the fifth. The Cardinals still lead 3-2.
Harrison worked a scoreless fourth. He pounded Skip Schumaker in on the hands, shattering his bat on a groundout, and retired Carpenter on an easy fly with runners at second and third to end the inning.
Furcal, dropped from his leadoff spot to seventh in the lineup, is 2 for 2 with a pair of singles.
Craig’s opposite-field fly to right appeared to carry and carry before landing in the Cardinals’ bullpen as St. Louis relievers danced with glee.
