I don't care a lick about the Texas Rangers or the St. Louis Cardinals. Without a rooting interest, I've watched very little of the World Series this year. I only tuned in last night after the Leafs game because it was potentially the clinching game.
I'm very glad I did. It was one of the most entertaining games of baseball I've ever seen, and my heart is so grateful that I didn't care about either team.
If you stayed up late to watch, you know what I'm talking about. The Cards were down to their final out twice. In the bottom of the ninth, the Rangers led by 2 and had 2 out and 2 strikes on David Freese. All he did was hit a game-tying, two-run triple off the wall in right.
In the bottom of the tenth, the Rangers again led by 2 with 2 out and 2 strikes, this time on Lance Berkman. All Berkman did was hit a game-tying, two-run single.
Then, in the bottom of the eleventh, David Freese hit a walk-off homer to force a game 7. I love this call by Joe Buck, channelling his dad's call from game 6 in 1991. Perfect.
We'll see what happens tonight. I love baseball.
