The St. Louis Cardinals are the National League champions following an outstanding offensive display in Milwaukee last night.
David Freese belted one of the Cardinals' three home runs while going 3-for-4 with three runs scored in a 12-6 rout of the Brewers in Game 6 of the NLCS. Freese smacked a three-run shot to put the Cardinals ahead 4-0 in the first inning. Rafael Furcal launched a solo blast in the second and Albert Pujols did the same in the third. Pujols and pinch-hitter Allen Craig each finished with two RBIs.
The St. Louis Cardinals celebrate on the field at Miller Park after winning Game 6 of the National League Championship Series against the Milwaukee Brewers 12-6. The World Series against the Texas Rangers starts Wednesday.

The Cardinals will have a "happy flight" home following their efforts tonight.
David Freese hit an early three-run homer and manager Tony La Russa turned again to his brilliant bullpen for seven sturdy innings as the St. Louis Cardinals captured their 18th pennant with a 12-6 victory over the bumbling Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday night.
