Lewis, Rangers Have to Wait for Game 6

Rain delay postpones the 6th game of Series.

It looks like we’re going to have to wait  until tonight for Game 6 of the 107th Fall Classic. This is the first rain delay in the World Series since 2006 in Game 4, which ironically, was also at Busch Stadium in St. Louis. The last time a World Series game was cancelled during a game was 2008 Game 5 at Citizens Bank Park in Philly in 2008. I think that the MLB made the right call in postponing the game. Now, Colby Lewis faces Jaime Garcia in a game where Texas could clinch its first World Series since… its first World Series win. This cancellation is definitely tougher on Texas, having to spend another day with their thoughts of clinching. I would rather be in the position of Tony LaRussa than Ron Washington, despite the Cardinals being down 3 games to 2. I think that if St. Louis wins Game 6, then they win Game 7 and their second World Series in the last 5 years.

“I think people think that we’re going to sit in our hotel room, bite our nails all night. That’s really not the case,” says Michael Young

No matter what they say, there is no way either team can’t have even the slightest jitters. But, that’s only being human. However, I think that Texas will get the win today and their first World Series.

Final Score prediction: 

Texas      3

St. Louis 2

I think that this game will go into extra innings, with Texas winning in the top of the 11th.
