(BaseballStL) -- Many fans will never forget where they watched David Freese’s walk-off home run to force a Game 7 for the St. Louis Cardinals and Texas Rangers.  Below is players’ and coaches’ reaction to the thrilling Game 6 victory:

"What happened today, I just think it's, you had to be here to believe it. We never quit trying." -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa

"I actually felt pretty good about it because I figured I was in a no-lose situation." -- Lance Berkman on his game-tying single in the 10th inning

“It just wasn’t supposed to happen tonight so we just have to come back tomorrow and fight just as hard because they certainly will.” -- Rangers manager Ron Washington

“I felt like I was part of a circus out there bouncing balls off the top of my hat.  When things like that happen, you have to realize that it’s not the first time and it’s not the last.” -- David Freese on his 4th inning error

“You grow up dreaming that scenario and I’ll be honest with you, I was running around the bases and (Jim) Edmonds popped into my head...you know that moment.  It wouldn’t be as sweet if this group of guys wasn’t with me.” -- Freese on his walk-off home run
