Tigers to face Cardinals in World Series

As a Cubs fan, now I have extra incentive to root for the Tigs. We hate us some Cardinals, booooo- they are the root of all evil. Really. Trust me on this.

NEW YORK (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals beat the New York Mets 3-to-1 to win the National League Championship Series in seven games.

Yadier Molina's two-run home run in the top of the ninth broke a 1-1 tie and sent the Cardinals to the World Series for the second time in the last three seasons.

The Cardinals will play the Detroit Tigers starting Saturday night in the Motor City. It's the same teams who met in the 1934 and 1968 World Series.

The Cubs crushed the Cards in head-to-head play this year- and if they can do it, the Tigers should certainly be able to do it also.

Let's go TIGERS!
