David Freese hit a walk-off home run in the 11th inning to give the Cardinals 10-9 win over the Texas Rangers in an unforgettable Game 6 to force a decisive Game 7 on Friday night.
Freese, who grew up in the St. Louis area, forced the game to extra innings with a two-out, two-strike, two-RBI triple off of Rangers closer Neftali Feliz.
Josh Hamilton then hit a two-run home run in the top of the 10th inning to give the Rangers a lead, but once again, Texas got the Cardinals down to their final out, only to see the lead slip away. Lance Berkman singled in a run in the bottom half of the inning to tie things up.
Freese's home run ensures that baseball will see its first World Series Game 7 in nine years.
