ST LOUIS - The St. Louis Cardinals completed their magical comeback season by beating the Texas Rangers 6-2 in a deciding Game Seven to clinch the World Series on Friday.

When Jason Motte retired David Murphy for the final out, the Cards rushed into the infield to celebrate a season in which they overcame a 10-1/2 game deficit in the final month to reach the playoffs and fought back twice in the postseason to claim their 11th Major League Baseball championship.

Confetti filled the chilly night air as the raucous, white-towel waving crowd at Busch Stadium roared in delight.

A two-run double by Game Six hero David Freese in the first inning tied the game 2-2 and a solo home run by Allen Craig in the third gave the Cardinals a 3-2 lead, before Texas pitching unraveled in the fifth inning.

St. Louis tacked on two more runs in the fifth without a hit as relievers Scott Feldman and C.J. Wilson combined to walk three, one intentionally, and hit two batters as the Cardinals padded their lead to 5-2.

Cardinals starter Chris Carpenter, pitching on a short rest period, went six innings for the series-clinching win, giving up two runs on six hits while striking out five.
