Game 6 of the World Series at Busch Stadium tonight
Jaime Garcia takes the mound tonight for the Cardinals in Game 6 of the World Series at Busch Stadium, and the Texas Rangers will counter with Colby Lewis. The two pitchers faced each other in Game 2, with the Rangers ultimately getting the victory.
The Rangers have a 3-2 lead in the series. If the Rangers win tonight's game it will be their first World Series title.

The Cardinals claimed Game 1 of the World Series last night at Busch Stadium against the Texas Rangers.
Pinch-hitter Allen Craig drove in the go-ahead run to give the Cardinals a 3-2 win. Lance Berkman put the Cardinals ahead with a two-run single in the fourth, and Rangers catcher Mike Napoli tied the game with a home run the next inning. Pitcher Chris Carpenter got the win, allowing five hits in six innings. Allen Craig says it worked out to have Carpenter on the mound during the first game.
Be prepared for extra security at Busch Stadium tonight
If you're going to Game One of the World Series tonight, expect it to take a little longer to get into Busch Stadium. In addition to added security due to the importance of the game, First Lady Michele Obama and Vice President Joe Biden's wife, Dr. Jill Biden, will be in attendance.
St. Louis Police Chief Dan Isom says the department is coordinating security with the Secret Service and it will be a challenge.
