The Cardinals bent without breaking
and took a title for the taking,
outlasting the Rangers
through seven-game dangers,
thanks to some David Freese raking.
In a classic comeback in Game Six,
the Cards pulled their signature tricks.
Pushed close to the edge,
they managed to dredge
and win with big swings from big sticks.
Riding momentum’s full swing,
the Cards won their rights to a ring
with their Game-Seven play
at the Midwest’s gateway,
completing their journey from spring.
