this could very well be -- the cardinal fans have wondered more than once if this would be the final time they would see albert pujols bat in a cardinal uniform. and those realizing it getting to their feet with two out, nobody on, here in the seventh. the fans gave him a 45-second standing ovation september 25 against the cubs. who knew then that cardinals would make it all the way to the world series. they trail by three here in game six. >> tim: 11 years of excellence as a cardinal. >> joe: this world series except for huge game three -- hitless in this world series except for huge game three. he has three home runs coming to third player to ever do

baseline. rzepczynski makes a great play! two out. >> tim: go to pujols. very, very nice. >> joe: albert pujols handed tony la russa a picture of the two of them. at the end of pujols' rookie year. and he wanted tony la russa to sign it. tony la russa said let me think about it for a night and i'll give it to you tomorrow. realize this is back in 2001 when we had seen just one excellent season from albert pujols. and tony la russa, who was in his 33rd year of managing in the big leagues, thought about it for a night and wrote on that picture in 2001, "to the best player i've ever managed." signed his name, to albert pujols. now here he is. maybe days away from
free agency. you wonder what the market will be and you wonder how competitive the cardinals will be in trying to keep one of the best players ever to wear this historic uniform. >> tim: very few players after only 11 years would be a shoo-in for the hall of fame. but you are looking at one right there. if his career were over today, he is a hall-of-famer. >> joe: rzepczynski takes care of the rangers 1-2-3. in the bottom of the eighth inning, berkman, jay, freese coming up. maybe the best ever, heck the best ever. stan musial, stan "the man" at the park tonight. bottom of the eighth. 7-4, texas.

[ cheering ]
>> tim: a breaking ball that hangs inside but not for long. the first run the cardinals have scored off derek holland in this world series. >> joe: now the batter is david freese. who has a walk last time up. 0-2. >> joe: this cardinal team has been resilient all year. fought through injury and charged their way back up in the wild card standings. they have ineffect played elimination games since the end
of august. as the count goes to 2-1. >> tim: once again, 10-1/2 back on august 25. they ended up winning the wild card on the last day of the season from the braves. >> joe: beat the heavily favored philadelphia phillies and they beat the brewers and they trail here tonight. not just here in the series but in game six. 7-5, now. the count is 2-2 on freese. interesting that holland is still on the mound. and mike adams who was traded to this team for spots like this and had not been in a game since game two is not the ballgame. holland gets the ground ball. andrus stumbles but gets the out. two out. adams is ready to go. yadier molina is coming up.
only man to reach against holland. the one-out home run by craig in the eighth. >> tim: also before game five, down in arlington, ron washington telling us that he will use neftali feliz for four outs if necessary. the cardinals need, they have four outs to score at least two runs. off holland and others. >> joe: that was a big run that scored for texas in the top of the seventh. with the two-out rbi hit by kin ken ki -- bn kinsler. that made it 7-4, now it's 7-5. molina lines a base hit to right. and just like that, the tying run comes to the plate. [ applause ] gerald leonard has come in the on-deck
circle. mike adams continues to get ready in the bullpen. the pitcher's spot is due up right now. that is why laird. also, the cardinals are one base runner away from assuring another albert pujols at-bat before the end of this gam game. that is going to be it for holland. mike adams. ron washington has not made the call yet, but figures to. adams who was traded to texas in july, from the san diego padres. he will enter here and deal with the tying run at the plate. one on, two out.

[ male announcer ] layaway's back for christmas in our electronics, toys, and jewelry departments. >> joe: game six of the 2011 world series may be remember for nights it was touch to catch it with a glove, or with the bare hand. tough to find a handle. a total of five errors have been committed. three by the cardinals, to by the rangers. that man number five wondering if he will get one more shot. so far, the rangers have been able to overcome and outplay their error more than the cardinals. the rangers have had more consistent offense through this series. they are four outs away defensively from their first world championship as mike adams takes over. laird was announced. then replaced by
descalso. the cardinal bench is empty. descalso. 0-1 in this world series. grounded to the left side. the play is at first. safe. two on, two out. [ applause ] >> tim: kinsler was playing descalso. so andrus' first look at second, he decided that kinsler had too far to go. but if he goes to second base, molina is easily out. descalso on the other hand, very fast. and has an infield hit i think. it is being scored an infield hit. but andrus' play was for second base. >> joe: and now jon jay all of a sudden represents the go-ahead run. and the rangers are
scrambling to get darren oliver ready. >> tim: here it is. ian kinsler playing descalso to pull. but he is very fast. so he had an easy play at second base on the slow-footed molina. but he elects to go to first. and the speedy descalso beats the play. >> joe: jon jay is hitless in this world series. will he face adams? yes. two on, two out. in to right field. a base hit. they will hold molina, the bases are loaded. and now furcal will
walk to the plate. a hit away from tying game six. that for jon jay, his first hit since game six of the nlcs. here comes mike maddux out to talk with the struggling furcal, who is 3-24 in this world series without an rbi. >> tim: it's worth mentioning, joe, that the cardinals have gone through the line-up, as oliver is warming. he is warm. have gone through the warmup twice coming in to this inning without getting a ball out of the infield. 18 straight batters could not get a ball out of the infield. they've already scored one in this inning. and a base hit to the outfield to score two to tie it.
unbelievable. >> joe: rafael furcal. picked up in july from the dodgers. chops it back to adams. and a quiet end to the eighth. in the inning, a home run by allen craig, to make it a two-run game. pujols will bat again before the end of the night. we go to the ninth inning. game six. they exhale in the texas dugout and they lead by two. de bi.

furcal for the world, three ou -- furcal for the world series, three out of 25. whatever mike maddux said, the pitching coach of the rangers, it made mike adams laugh and maybe relax to make a big pitch to get furcal to end the bottom of the eighth. >> tim: what a great shot at getting furcal with the bases loaded two out. tying run on second base. getting furcal in the first pitch. >> joe: napoli, strike one. derek holland who is in line for the win goes two innings tonight. one run on two hits. strike-outs to walks. adams will come in and allow two hits and a third. and the rest of this one has believe belongs to neftali feliz. it's hot. hopping around after that pitch got away
