ST. LOUIS -- Cardinals manager Tony La Russa made the first move, ending starter Jaime Garcia's night after three innings. Right-hander Fernando Salas takes over in the top of the fourth of a 2-2 tie in Game 6.

Garcia allowed baserunners in each of the three innings, but managed to escape a dicey first inning with just one run scoring and got double plays in the second and third to ease his pain.

Ian Kinsler doubled in the Rangers' second run of the game in the second inning and Josh Hamilton singled in Kinsler in the first.

Lance Berkman hit a two-run homer for the Cardinals in the bottom of the first.
