Wotta ending, huh?

The Cardinals’ Allen Craig was awarded home plate after an obstruction call at third base kept him from advancing cleanly on a wild throw from Saltalamacchia and the Cards won Game Two 5 – 4 to take a two games to one lead in the World Series.

That last play is going to be remembered in World Series lore for quite a while.

    I only saw the replay and, while it’s unfortunate for the Sawx, I don’t think the umpires had any alternative under the rules. Craig was smart to go, presuming he knew the rule and expected them to call the play correctly.
