Add 2011 to the list.
At times it was unclear whether this year’s game six was being played for a World Series championship or relegation to the minor leagues. Both the Cardinals and Rangers committed numerous on-field miscues. There were several more head-scratching managerial decisions. St. Louis even scored runs in two different innings — the fourth and sixth — without hitting a ball out of the infield.
Still, the Rangers had five different leads in the game and looked to be headed to their first-ever Commissioner’s Trophy. The Cardinals were down to their last strike in both the ninth and tenth innings . . . only to tie the game both times. David Freese’s walk-off home run in the eleventh seemed almost anticlimactic by comparison.
“And we’ll see you tomorrow night!” indeed.
