(BaseballStL) -- St. Louis Cardinals third baseman David Freese did not make the only error in Game 6, but his error paved the way for the Texas Rangers to take the lead in the 5th inning.

With the game tied 3-3, Freese dropped a routine popup near third base off the bat of Josh Hamilton to start the 5th inning.  The next batter, Michael Young, doubled to the left field gap to score Hamilton from first base and give the Rangers the lead 4-3.

Hamilton hit .217 in the World Series and has been playing with a possible sports hernia injury.
