World Series Game 4: Cardinals at Rangers

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Oct 23, 2011 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

The Cardinals are back in front after Albert Pujols put on a show in Game 3, and now the Rangers need a win in tonight’s Game 4 to avoid falling to the verge of elimination. The Cardinals start mid-season addition Edwin Jackson against Rangers lefty Derek Holland.

• Last night, Pujols joined Babe Ruth and Reggie Jackson as the only players to ever hit three home runs in a single World Series game. Pujols night is already being called perhaps the greatest hitting performance in Series history.

• Of course, the Cardinals also benefited from a blown call in last night’s game. Isn’t there one of those every series? Aren’t we always talking about umpires at some point in the World Series?

Some idiot threw a Whiffle ball onto the field. But that’s alright, it’s only the World Series. Not like there are a thousand cameras to catch every little detail. I’m sure he got away with it…

• The World Series is going a little indie with Zooey Deschanel singing tonight’s Anthem.
