Cardinals 10, Rangers 9: David Freese Walks Off One of the Best. Games. Ever.

ST LOUIS, MO - OCTOBER 27: David Freese #23 of the St. Louis Cardinals hits a walk off solo home run in the 11th inning to win Game Six of the MLB World Series against the Texas Rangers at Busch Stadium on October 27, 2011 in St Louis, Missouri.

I simply cannot put into words how amazing this game was. A run by the Rangers in the first before the Cardinals answer with two in the bottom half, but the Rangers tied it in the top of the seventh and never trailed again.

Until David Freese hit one over the fence in dead center field. Game over. Bring on Game 7.

Errors early in the game. The Cardinals clawing their way back to within one. Blown scoring chances. Mike Napoli twisting his ankle sliding into second base, then throwing, from his knees, Matt Holliday out at third base. A pair of solo home runs from Adrian Beltre and Nelson Cruz during a three-run inning for Texas that looked to put the game on ice. Two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the ninth before Freese triples into the corner to tie it up. Josh Hamilton's two-run homer in the tenth. Albert Pujols doubling in the tenth to kick off a rally, and then Lance Berkman's single with two outs and two strikes in the bottom of the frame to tie it up again.

And Freese. Leading off the eleventh after his team had been left for dead no less than three times in the game, working a full count, and then taking Mark Lowe deep.

I'm exhausted. This game was just. So. Amazing.

Go crazy, folks. Go crazy. (Is what Joe Buck said instead of what he did say.)
