Rangers Vs. Cardinals Score: Lance Berkman Ties Game 6 Once again

Lance Berkman's two out single  in the bottom of the tenth brought home the tying run as the Cardinals once again looked defeat square in the eye and didn't blink. 

With Texas leading 9-7 entering the inning, Darren Oliver promptly allowed singles to Daniel Descalso and Jon Jay. Kyle Lohse then sacrificed the runners to second and third. Ron Washington replaced Oliver with Scott Feldman who got Ryan Theriot to ground out for the second out of the inning. Descalso scored on the play to make it 9-8 Rangers. 

After an intentional walk to Albert Pujols, Berkman came through in the clutch shooting a line drive single to center field that scored Jay and once again tied the game. Feldman ended the threat by getting Allen Craig to ground out with runners at second and third.
