Cardinals 10, Rangers 9 (11 innings)
World Series Game 6 (Oct. 27)
In a game that has already taken its place alongside the other classics of the national pastime, the host Cardinals, twice down to their final strike, rallied to beat the Rangers in 11 innings on a walk-off home run by David Freese, a St. Louis native. Freese had hit a two-run triple with two outs in the ninth to tie the game, and after the Rangers went ahead again by two on a home run by a hobbling Josh Hamilton in the 10th, St. Louis rallied to tie it again with two outs, this time on a Lance Berkman single. After holding Texas scoreless in the top of the 11th, Freese homered to dead center in the bottom half to force a Game 7 that the Cardinals would win to capture their 11th championship.
