Quantcast

Behind the big bat of Mike Napoli.

Wait, Mike Napoli? Yes. He hit 30 home runs this year, Baseball Reference tells me.

Pujols was hitless, for the second straight game -- after going 5-for-6 in the game 3. (In fairness to Pujols, he had only two chances. He was intentionally walked three times.)

I love this stat:

The Rangers are the fifth team to walk at least nine batters in a World Series game and still win.
But if I'm a Cardinals fan, I don't love this stat:
This is now the 40th time in World Series history that a Game 5 was played with the Series tied at two wins apiece. The team that won Game 5 prevailed in 26 of the previous 39 World Series that were tied at 2 after four games.
In theory, my Texas in six prediction could still be right, but at this point I think we're going seven.
