Cards win!

If you are a Cardinals fan, and like me you turned the game off last night in the fourth inning because the Cards were down 6-0, well, we missed history. The Cardinals succeeded in the largest comeback in a winner-take-all post season game in Major League history by beating the Washington Nationals 9-7. The Cards will travel to San Francisco to open the National League Championship Series tomorrow night.

The Cardinals were down 7-5 with two outs in the ninth inning and somehow managed to score four runs, again with two outs, to stun the Nats 9-7 in an epic game 5 showdown that was made possible by a walk-off homer by the Nats Jayson Werth on Thursday to force a deciding game 5.

The St. Louis Cardinals are now 6-0 when facing elimination over the last two seasons. The Cardinals went on to win the World Series last year thanks to a couple of epic comebacks and the bat of David Freese. This is the second year in a row the Cards have powered their way to the NLCS after being a long-shot at best.

Last night capped the first postseason series in our nation’s capital in 79 years. While the Cardinals will continue their quest for a second straight World Series title against the Giants, the New York Yankees will square off against the Detroit Tigers in the American League Championship Series. Strap in folks, it’s gonna be a wild ride!
