World Series Game 7: Allen Craig Unties Game With Solo Shot, Gives Cardinals 3-2 Lead

Three pitches into Game 7 of the 2011 World Series, the Cardinals and Rangers were tied 2-2. At least, that's what it felt like. I wasn't really watching. ESPN2 has the Pan-American Games on, and I have picture-in-picture working, so forgive me if these updates seem scattered.

After that early hiccup from both starters, though, both pitchers settled down. Like, really settled down. Carpenter allowed a walk in the second inning, and he hit Adrian Beltre with a pitch in the third, but that's all. Matt Harrison ...

...

... just allowed a home run as I was typing his name. Sorry about that, Rangers fans. He was really looking good, though!

The homer was hit by Allen Craig, who is only in the lineup because Matt Holliday has an ouchie.


Of course. Lose one of your best hitters. His replacement gives you the lead. Win a World Series after being ten games back in August. The Aristocrats!

Now it's 3-2 Cardinals, but I have the feeling the final score will be 8-7 someone, so this probably isn't over.
