Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Josh Hamilton's Homer Puts Rangers Back In Front 9-7

Game 6 of the 2011 World Series has been full of can you top this moments. Just minutes after David Freese tied the game with two outs in the bottom of the ninth, Josh Hamilton hit a two run home run to put the Rangers back on top. 

Elvis Andrus singled with one out in the tenth setting the table for Hamilton who took a Jason Motte pitch deep to right to give Texas a 9-7 lead. Mitch Moreland followed with a fly out to center. The inning ended when Motte got Adrian Beltre to ground out to Freese at third. 

Darren Oliver is coming in for the Rangers to try and close the game out once again. The bottom half of the 10th will be the second time that Texas entered the final inning with a two run lead.
