One of the most exciting baseball games of all time. An instant classic.  Stunning, dramatic, unbelievable - just a few of the words analysts are using to describe game 6 of the World Series in St. Louis Thursday night.  Here’s a mashup courtesy of MLB.com.

“I don’t even know what to say about that game.”
“I’m exhausted and I didn’t even play. Wow.”
“It’s the greatest game I think I’ve ever seen, especially post season.”
“This was incredible.”
“I’ve never seen anything like it. Tonight was an instant classic.”
“We talked about the rally squirrel before the game, he came out in the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th.  That little guy was running around everywhere, there must be a family of them, because I’ve never seen anything like this.  


The Cardinals’ miraculous roller-coaster comeback captured the country. Pandemonium inside Busch Stadium, and outside - Twitter, Facebook, and ESPN were bombarded with posts from fans amazed by what they had just witnessed. The overwhelming reaction; Did that really just happen?

As of Friday Morning - the Cardinals comeback is still the lead story on Google News.

It did happen - and in case you missed it - here’s a little recap from MLB.com.

“The Cards are down to their last strike. Into right well hit. Freese has tied it.”
“Two outs, two strikes, the pitch a swing and a base hit to centerfield and the Cardinals have done it again.
“A swing and high drive to center. Get up baby. get up baby! Oh yeah! The Cardinals win it 10-9! Unbelievable.”


David Freese a household name? If he wasn’t already - he might be now.  The media is still unwinding trying to put the game into historical perspective.  

In a poll on ESPN Sports Nation, an overwhelming percentage of fans agreed, David Freese’s Game 6 performance  was the most clutch of all time.

In Texas, fans react to a heartbreaking loss.  The champagne was out, then put away, then back out again, all to be put back until maybe the conclusion of game 7.  

Despite the tough loss, Rangers outfielder Josh Hamilton said the game was so good it made the loss easier to deal with. Here’s the Dallas Morning News with his quote.

"We were talking about it in the outfield … Whoever we brought in (to pitch). They had a couple guys on and we were like, 'This is a classic.' So we're not all stressed out as bad as you think we are. We'd like to watch it later, too.''   

So now, its seventh heaven in St. Louis. The Cardinals are looking for their 11th World Series title and the Rangers - their first.  Two teams - one game - and one World Series title on the line.  If game 7 is anything like game 6 - expect drama.
