Cardinals Win Game Three In World Series After Rare Call By Umpires

On Saturday night, something unexpected happened in an important baseball game.

The St. Louis Cardinals were playing against the Boston Red Sox in the World Series.

The World Series is a best-of-seven series. That means the first team to win four games wins the World Series and is named the best major-league baseball team of the year.

The games are always filled with tension and excitement, but Saturday’s game—game three—had a bit more of both.

It was the bottom of the ninth inning.

The game was tied 4-4.

It was the last chance for the Cardinals to score a point. If they did, they would win the game.

What happened next was very exciting.
