Rangers mess with Cardinals closure plans, for now.

The World Series is now down to a best of 3 with the Cards holding home field advantage. Now if you’re a cards fan and someone told you in May (or better yet August 19) that you would have that scenario, you would take it 8 days a week and twice on Sunday. However when you left Arlington on Sunday night you would have thought it was 3-1 Texas. I think that’s because no one in the Cardinals clubhouse or even in the state of Texas thought Derek Holland would not only pitch the game of his life but one of the best in Series history. However at the end of the day the Cards have a favorable rotation matchup for both games 5 and 6, with Carpenter on the bump Monday and he’s due for a career defining game with all the lights on. Also with phat Albert going ofer in game 4 you would have to think he’ll be back with a vengeance in such a crucial game. At the end of the day it’s still a must win for the Rangers as nothing really has changed for St. Louis, just hold serve and your adding another ring to the collection, but win in game 5 and you can take the balloons, streamers, and bubbly with you because they’re not coming back for any parade.
