What an AWSOME game. Yadi’s time was up and he clocked it to thrust the Cards into the World Series. Way to go Babyface!
“You had the 1906 Cubs (a ridiculous 116-36) tumbling to the crosstown White Sox (93-58) in the World Series. You had the 1954 Indians (111-43) falling to Willie Mays’ Giants (97-57). And you had the 2001 Mariners (116-46) crumbling in the ALCS at the hands of those four-time champs from the Bronx (95-65).
And that’s it.
