After a long night's worth of Yadi! Yadi! Yadi! at a raucous Busch Stadium the St. Louis Cardinals' catcher finally gave the people what they wanted, grounding a single up the middle to score Lance Berkman and push the Cardinals' lead to a still-terrifying 6-2 in the bottom of the seventh inning of Game 7 of the 2011 World Series. It was Molina's second hit and second RBI of the night, and his 23rd career postseason RBI.
Molina's single came as the Cardinals finally appeared to solve Rangers set-up man Mike Adams, and just before inexplicably AWOL Rangers lefty specialist Mike Gonzalez came in to handcuff Skip Schumaker and end the Cardinals' scoring threat.
With a four-run deficit and Game 6 still in our collective memory the Texas Rangers are anything but out of this game with two innings to go. The Cardinals will have to deal with the middle of the Rangers' order once more, at least—and they'll have to do it with the best members of their bullpen pitching after a rough Game 6.
