Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Michael Young Error Comes Back To Bite Texas, St Louis Ties Game 3-3

A Michael Young error at first base on a Lance Berkman grounder came back to bite the Texas Rangers in the fourth inning as the Cardinals were able to push across the game tying run. 

Young ranged to his right on Berkman's grounder but his throw pulled Colby Lewis off the bag at first enabling Berkman to reach safely to lead off the inning. Matt Holiday followed with a walk to put runners at first and second with nobody out in the inning. David Freese then grounded into what looked like a double play but Holliday's slide at second forced an errant throw from Elvis Andrus.

With runners at the corners, Yadier Molina tied the game with an RBI ground out to third. Lewis struck out Nick Punto with a runner at second to end the inning.
