Rangers - 110 110 300 20 - 9 15 2 Cardinals - 200 101 012 21 - 10 13 3
Matthew Leach, MLB.com:
The Cardinals trailed five times in the game, including by two runs in the ninth and again in the 10th, but an irrepressible club kept coming back. ... The win means that the World Series will go to a seventh game for the first time since 2002. ...The Rangers did not trail in the game after the top of the second inning - until David Freese hit his game-winning home run in the bottom of the 11th!
The Cardinals overcame one of their sloppiest games of the year for one of their most improbable wins. They committed three errors plus a costly wild pitch, lost a runner on a critical pickoff and had trouble for much of the night turning baserunners into runs. But after repeatedly getting down to their final turn at bat, they simply would not die.
This was only the third time that a team came back to win a World Series game after being one out from elimination:
1911 Game 5 - New York Giants beat Philadelphia A's (but lost Game 6)The home team has won the last eight Game 7s:
1986 Game 6 - New York Mets beat Boston Red Sox (and won Game 7)
2011 Game 6 - St. Louis Cardinals beat Texas Rangers (??)
1982 - Cardinals 6, Brewers 3The last visiting team to win a Game 7 was the 1979 Pirates, who beat the Orioles 4-1. Pittsburgh trailed in that series 1-3 and won the last three games.
