Surprising Cardinals advance to 2011 World Series to face Texas Rangers

Cardinals advance to 2nd World Series in 6 years

ST. LOUIS — The St. Louis Cardinals used the long ball early and often in Game 6 of the National League Championship Series and it was more than enough as the Cards doubled up the Milwaukee Brewers 12-6 to win the series 4 games to 2. Led by a three-run HR by third baseman (and NLCS Most Valuable Player) David Freese in the first inning, they also received home runs from Rafael Furcal and Albert Pujols as they knocked out starter Shaun Marcum after one inning, and added 5 more runs off Chris Narveson over the next two innings to put the game away early. Cardinals manager Tony LaRussa worked his pitching staff almost flawlessly, as starter Edwin Jackson had his own struggles and was knocked out of the game after just two innings. Marc Rzepcynski earned the win in relief, throwing two innings and allowing one run and one hit.

Game 1 of the World Series will be Wednesday night in St. Louis, and while nothing has been officially decided, the smart money would be on Chris Carpenter getting the start for the Cardinals and C.J. Wilson getting the start for the Rangers.
