2011 World Series Game 7: Rangers at Cardinals, Friday 10/28, 7:05 CT

I don't know how you could top last night's Game 6, but baseball has done it before -- Game 7 in 1991, for example, might have been better than the previous game in that series, which was won on a walkoff home run. Jack Morris threw a 10-inning shutout that night -- I think it's pretty safe to say that no one will ever do that in the World Series again.

One thing we know for sure: Joe Buck will not be able to say "We'll see you tomorrow night." Unless you've invited him to your house that night or something.

It's the first Game 7 in a World Series in nine years. The last eight Game 7's have all been won by the home team -- but the Rangers have not lost consecutive games in more than two months.

Matt Harrison faces Chris Carpenter tonight, but you can be sure that every pitcher on both pitching staffs is available for duty; none of them will have to throw again until spring training.

More game details after the jump. Go Rangers!

Game time for Rangers/Cardinals: 7:05 pm. CDT. Series tied 3-3. TV: Fox. Announcers: Joe Buck & Tim McCarver (get your mute button ready, although Buck's tribute to his dad last night was cool).

This is the only thread I'm posting for today's game. If you need overflows due to extra innings or rain delays, post them in the fanshot section. And you might need it after last night -- almost 1000 comments in the game thread, and these teams aren't even our team. This is why baseball is so great.

Discuss amongst yourselves.
