It's a best-of-seven series but, for some reason, the 'best' has traditionally taken place in the sixth game. The 2011 World Series had already created some classic moments before it entered Game Six on Thursday night in St. Louis:

The Rangers' had ninth inning rally to win Game 2 in St. Louis. 

Albert Pujols' night for the ages in Game 3 on the road, crushing three home runs and driving in six runs. 

Derek Holland nearly pitched a complete game shutout in game 4. 

Mike Napoli powered Texas to a dramatic win in Game 5.

Then came game 6. 

How good was it?

It was great. One of the all-time greats. Was it the greatest? Well it's very close but the competition is very tough as well.
