David Freese clubbed a lead-off, walk-off solo homer in the bottom of the 11th inning to give the Cardinals a wild 10-9 win over the Rangers in Game Six of the World Series. Freese also hit a game-tying two-run triple with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the ninth. Josh Hamilton hit a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the 10th for Texas, but Lance Berkman laced a game-tying RBI single with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the inning.
Berkman had three hits, four runs scored and three RBI for the Cards, who overcame three errors to capture one of the most dramatic wins in World Series history. Jake Westbrook tossed a scoreless 11th to earn the win. Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz hit back-to-back solo homers in the seventh for Texas, which was only a strike away from its first World Series title in franchise history twice. Mark Lowe allowed Freese's blast to take the loss. The decisive Game Seven in St. Louis will get underway at 8:05 p.m. Eastern this evening.
