The St. Louis Cardnals won a thrilling come-from-behind Game 6 in the World Series on David Freese’s 11th Inning home run. Twice, the Texas Rangers had the Cardinals down to their last strike only to see the Cards somehow rally. The Game is already being touted as one of the greatest thrillers in baseball history.
