Game Six

A reporter on ESPN today said that the game was the most exciting game in over 600 World Series games. Hyperbole? Probably. It was an exciting game to watch, even for a Rangers fan.


Quote:
In one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history, the Cardinals twice rallied when they were down to their last strike of the season. First, Freese saved them with a two-run triple in the ninth, then Lance Berkman delivered a tying single in the 10th.
And when Freese led off the bottom of the 11th with his shot to beat Texas 10-9 and stomped on the plate, this Game 6 had already been stamped forever.

I agree it was exciting, but such poor defense from both teams can't allow it to be included in any "all-time" greats list of games.

I was a crappy fielder when I played PONY league ball. My Dad used to say "That's OK son, errors are part of the game."

The best World Series game in my memory up until I quit watching MLB ('95) was Game 1 in 1988, Kirk Gibson's home run. A great game with a Hollywood ending.

Game 7 just over.

Best world series in decades. I watched every pitch. Every one.

Great one.

This was the best series I can recall for a very long time and it had something for almost everyone, regardless of whether or not you are an avid baseball fan. It was heart breaking being a Rangers fan, but I'm still proud of our guys for a great year and as they say, there is always next year.
