Game Six audio recap: One for the ages

ST. LOUIS -- I wasn't there for Fisk or Buckner or Joe Carter but I've seen a lot in my time. I was in the house for every pitch of the Diamondbacks-Yankees series, for every pitch of the '04 ALCS where the Red Sox came back from a 3-0 hole and for the '04 Series against the Cardinals where they finally broke the curse. I've seen the Rally Monkey work his magic, a three-day-long clinching game in Philadelphia and even the Red Sox winning a second World Series.

But I have never seen anything like Thursday night in Busch Stadium.

Read my recap here as the Texas Rangers -- the woebegone, 49 years with no titles Texas Rangers -- had the World Series won twice. And didn't win it. And now they go to Game Seven against the St. Louis Cardinals after David Freese earned his spot in Series history with a two-run triple in the ninth and a game-winning home run in the 11th that propelled the Cardinals to a 10-9 win. Amazing stuff.

How do the Rangers possibly bounce back after this one? I have no idea. Here's some of my thoughts I recorded in the 2 a.m. hour in the aftermath of this classic.
