Last night, for the second time, Detroit loses 7-3 in 11 innings. Once again, they miised a few scoring chances, most notably in the eigth inning when, Miguel Cabrera attempted to score on a fly ball to normal depth right field and was thrown at home by about ten feet. It would have made sense if he had any speed at all. Detroit now trails in the series 3-1 with Game 5 already underway. Texas leads 1-0.

Texas, of course, eliminated Detroit 15-5 with the help of a 9 run third inning. The post season record is 10 runs in one inning, last done Detroit in the third inning of Game 6 of the 1968 World Series. Texas clearly had better pitching and hitting.

St. Louis 16 Texas 7. St. Louis takes a 2-1 series lead. Albert Pujols hits three home runs and goes 5 for 6 making him the third player to hit three home runs in a Series game. Babe Ruth did twice - in 1926 and 1928 and Reggie Jackson who needed only three pitches for his feat.

unbelievable game!

One that featured 3 blown saves, St. Louis tying the game in the 9th and 10th with two run rallies after being down to their last strike on both ocassions. Both of these were firsts.

Game 7 tonight at 8:05 P.M. This is the first time since 2002 the World Series has gone the limit with the home team winning the last 8 Game 7s. The last time the visiting team won Game 7 was Pittsburgh in 1979 to complete a complete a comeback from a 3-1 series deficit.

The turning point was when Texas pitcher C.J. Wilson issued two out walks. Series MVP David Freese followed with a game tying double. Texas might have overworked its bullpen. St. Louis becomes the ninth straight home team to win Game 7 of the Series.

St. Louis manager Tony Larussa retires after 33 seasons. He leaves with the third most wins as a manager with 2728 and joins Sparky Anderson as winning World Series titles in both leagues (St. Louis in 2006 and 2011 and Oakland in 1989). Anderson won titles with the Big Red Machine (Cincinnati Reds) in 1975-76 and with Detroit in 1984.
