Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Allen Craig Pinch Hit Single Puts St. Louis Back On Top

The Cardinals are back on top after an Allen Craig pinch hit single off of Alexi Ogando in the 6th inning scored David Freese giving St Louis a 3-2 lead. 

C.J. Wilson got Lance Berkman to pop out to start the 6th inning but then allowed a double to deep right field by third baseman David Freese. Wilson came back to strike out Yadier Molina but then walked Nick Punto to put runners at first and second with two outs. Wilson was then replaced by Alexi Ogando who promptly served up an RBI single to pinch hitter Allen Craig who was batting for Chris Carpenter. Rafel Furcal flew out to deep right field to end the inning. 

St. Louis reliever Fernando Salas is on to pitch in the 7th.
