It may have been Allen Craig who got the party started, giving him three go-ahead RBI in his first three World Series at bats. But by the end of the day, it was Albert Pujols who was the story as the Cardinals took Game 3 in Arlington 16-7.
It was a game that seemed like it was going to turn into a pitcher’s duel, at least the first time through the lineup. The second time though, that was a completely different story. The teams only scored 1 run in the first 3 innings, but scored 13 combined runs over the next two innings. Then St. Louis took control of what was a 8-6 game after five innings, outscoring the Rangers 8-1 over the game’s final four innings.
