NL Playoffs, Game 6: St. Louis 6, Houston 4 (12 innings)


EDMONDS!!!!! KJo this one's for youMove over, Carlos Bertran. Jim Edmonds isn't ready to give up the title of best NL center fielder just yet. Edmonds provided the heroics this time, hitting a two-run walk-off homer in the bottom of the 12th inning to send the Cards-Astros series to do-or-die time. Yes, KJo, your boy pulled through!

I was at church, huddled around a radio in the fellowship hall with a handful of other few believers when Jason Isringhausen blew the game for us in the ninth inning, serving up the same pitch to Jeff Bagwell that he served up to Jeff Kent to lose Game 5 in Houston on Monday. By then, it was 6:30 p.m., and time to glorify God with some holy music. Forgive me, Father, but I could not concentrate on the praise and worship service. My mind was on more temporal matters. I wanted to race through the music so I could take the youth group upstairs, utter a quick prayer, and tune in to the game on the radio. (Yes, last night's youth group service centered on the game. We listened to the short bottom of the 12th inning and rejoiced mightily when Edmonds won the game. Afterwards, when one of our youth group members told my wife what we had done, my wife shook her head, grinned and whispered, "You're going to hell, you know." But she had snuck out of services a couple of times to call a friend to check on the score, and she already knew the score before church was out.)

As always, Redbird Nation breaks down the game. Go there for a great analysis.

The Redbirds now face Roger Clemens in Game 7 tonight. The winner heads to Beantown, to take on the Boston Red Sox. Congratulations to the Sox for pulling off the greatest comeback ever. Until last night, no team down 3-0 in a playoff series has ever won. But the Bosox did it.
