Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Another Fielding Miscue Allows St. Louis To Tie Game

Another defensive miscue and a bases loaded walk to St Louis' Yadier Molina has Game 6 of the World Series all tied up heading to the seventh inning. 

The Cardinals were in business after Lance Berkman reached on an infield single and Michael Young committed his second error of the night on a ground ball off the bat of Matt Holiday. Colby Lewis then walked David Freese to load the bases prompting Ron Washington to replace him with Alexi Ogando who walked Yadier Molina to force home the tying run. 

Texas caught a break when Mike Napoli fired the ball down to third to pick off Matt Holiday for the second out of the inning. Ogando issued another free pass this time to Nick Punto to once again load the bases. Washington then went to the bullpen once again bringing in Game 4 starter Derek Holland who got the final out of the inning.
