Cardinals to take on Rangers in World Series

The St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 12-6 in Game 6 Sunday night to win the National League Championship Series.

The Cards will now take on the Texas Rangers in the World Series, which begins Wednesday.

St. Louis has won the World Series 10 times, most recently in 2006.

For the Rangers, it will be their second straight appearance.

Texas lost Major League Baseball's championship series last year to the San Francisco Giants.

    It would have been much better if it were a Cardinals/Tigers WS, but there you go.

      Texas has been hitting pretty good, I hope the Cards are on. Their hot and cold sometimes. I think if their on, it is going to be some high scoring games.

    I usually root for the AL teams; I'm crissing over.

      Gooooooooooooooo Cards. The heat is on. Have you seen those Squirrel shirts, OMG. You would think we would have picked a better mascot.
      Banasy Come to the dark side.
      Its a winner, as Jack Buck used to say, I loved that ole man, the voice of the cardinals since I was young girl. When he passed, it was like a family member of everyone in St. Louis died. The out pouring of thoughts to the family was tremendous.
