Did you stay awake for it?
We were treated to one of the most memorable games in baseball history on Thursday, Oct. 27.
Former Astro and Rice University product, Lance Berkman, helped the Cards rally back in the 10th inning, but talk about a game-changing moment for St. Louis - thanks David Freese, who ripped a walk-off homer to deep center field in the 11th inning.
Freese, who was born in Corpus Christi, Texas, couldn't have scripted that moment any better as his home run lifted the Cards to their 10-9 win.
"I figured I was in a no-lose situation. If you don't come through right there it's only one at-bat. It's over with," said Berkman. "If you come through it's the greatest."
"I felt like I was part of a circus act out there, bouncing balls off the top of my head," Freese said. "I just wanted an opportunity."
The guy that caught that game winning baseball gave it back to Freese - better known as the hometown king - for a ton of memorabilia in return. You hope the guy asked for tickets to Game 7 of the World Series.
Speaking of Game 7, can you believe it's the first once since 2002?
