Although it certainly may have felt like it on Saturday night, Albert Pujols' historic three-homer performance in Game 3 of the World Series did not actually clinch the World Series for the St. Louis Cardinals.

The Rangers face 1-2 deficit but can pull even with a win on Sunday in front of their home fans.

The Redbirds send Edwin Jackson to the mound while the Ranges give the ball to Derek Holland. With both pitchers being as likely to fizzle as to dazzle, the Cardinals' romp in the last game could affect this one as the Rangers had to lean heavily on their bullpen.

Can the Rangers bounce back from that demolition on Saturday? Or will the Cards take a stranglehold on the best-of-seven Series?

Stay tuned here for live updates throughout the game and tweet to @HuffPostSports to join in the conversation.

@ williamfleitch : Whew, Rangers are bringing in Feliz! Yeah! We have a chance now! #thingsderekhollandmademesay

For a second, I thought Wash was about to have his own Grady Little moment but I guess they wee just buying a few more throws for Feliz.
