(BaseballStL) -- Texas Rangers catcher Mike Napoli was at it again in Game 6 against the St. Louis Cardinals with another go-ahead RBI and three walks.

Napoli was able to drive his tenth run batted in in the top of the 4th inning after Cardinals outfielder Matt Holliday was charged with an error on a fly ball that allowed Nelson Cruz to advance to second.

Cruz was safe at second base after hitting a pop fly to short left field as shortstop Rafael Furcal was trekking back and Holliday was charging in to catch it.  The ball eventually fell out of Holliday’s glove.

Napoli followed the play with a line drive single down the right field line to score Cruz.

Napoli also picked Matt Holliday off from third base with the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the 6th inning

Napoli is hitting .333 with two home runs and 10 RBIs in the World Series.
