World Series Champions!

The St. Louis Cardinals won their 11th World Series title on Friday night.

Now, the Cardinals are the champions, defying all of the odds, and achieving what seemed to be impossible.

Hometown Hero David Freese walked off the field with the MVP award.

The Cardinals had a desperate rush to reach the postseason on the final day of the regular season. It was amazing that they were the NL Wild Card. Then they beat Philadelphia 3-2 in the first round of the NL playoffs. They then went on to beat Milwaukee 4-2 in the NL championship series.

The Cardinals were down 3-2 to the Texas Rangers coming back to St. Louis for Game 6 on Wednesday night, which was rained out and rescheduled for Thursday night. The Cardinals staged an amazing comeback, rallying (twice!) to win in the 11th inning by a score of 10-9. Carpenter started Game 7, and the Cardinals went on to win the World Series 6-2.
