I was thinking earlier about how many key plays we've not even had any time to discuss. Was it the 10th where we scored a run on a ground out before Berkman's hit? Theriot? Was there any chance they get DD at the plate if they come home with it? Maybe not the smart play with a 2 run lead and one out but I was thinking he's nailed at the plate if Beltre came home with it.

Game 6 posted a 12.7/21 fast national household rating/share with an average viewership of 21.1 million viewers, and is the highest-rated and most-watched World Series game since Game 6 of the 2009 World Series (13.4/22, 22.3 million), according to Nielsen Media Research. Ten World Series games have been played since then. It is also the highest-rated World Series game not involving the New York Yankees since Game 4 in 2005 (13.0/21), and is the most-watched World Series game sans the nationally popular Yankees and Boston Red Sox since Game 7 in 2002 (30.8 million).

If you hadn't made a Tom Emanski joke by this point, you didn't have a pulse.
Jonah Keri reads GRB game threads.

I'll have to check the replay but I think DD was off on contact and Beltre, who wasn't playing in at that point, had no choice really but to go for the out at first.

Exactly. In the air to a foot or two to the left field side and Beltre catches it and ends the game.
