St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers meet today to decide the World Series. A seventh game is needed after the Cardinals defeated the Rangers yesterday in St. Louis.
The New York Times reported: “In a contest that seems destined to take its place as one of the most iconic in the 107-year history of the World Series, the St Louis Cardinals, down to their last strike of the season in two separate innings o fought their way back to defeat the Texas Rangers, 10-9, in 11 innings.”
Dominican Albert Pujols commented on the game: “This is better than the three homeruns I hit the other day,” as reported in The NY Times. “It’s unbelievable. This is what it’s all about. If I don’t tell you that’s the best game that I’ve played in, then I’m lying to you. It was the best game. But we’ve got one more, and hopefully we can finish it up tomorrow.”
Dominicans have the best of both worlds. No matter which team wins, there will be celebrations given the key roles that sluggers Pujols and Nelson Cruz of the Texas Rangers have played with their respective teams.
