For only the third time since 2002 (2003 and 2009 the others), we will have a World Series that will go at least six games. This one's been good, too; three games not really decided until the late innings and the one blowout did at least have the Albert Pujols Show to keep it interesting.

The last game at Rangers Ballpark before it heads back to St. Louis will be tonight. One of the teams will be ahead three games to two. Will it be the Cardinals behind Chris Carpenter or the Rangers behind C.J. Wilson?

Last night's winner, Derek Holland, is a big-time tweeter. Worth following, I'd say.

Full game details after the jump.

Game time for Rangers/Cardinals: 7:05 pm. CDT. Series tied 2-2. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck & Tim McCarver (get your mute button ready).
