Rangers Lean On Lewis' Arm For Game 6
ST. LOUIS (AP) -- It's already been a productive postseason for Colby Lewis. Next up, a shot at the biggest prize yet.

In Game 6 of the World Series on Wednesday night, Lewis gets the first chance to pitch the Texas Rangers to their first title.

Jaime Garcia is back home where he's most comfortable, and the wild-card St. Louis Cardinals are back in a familiar win-or-go-home mode, heading into a mound rematch from Game 2.

Three of Garcia's four postseason starts have been at Busch Stadium and the 25-year-old lefty has a 1.93 ERA at home. He outpitched Lewis in the first matchup with seven innings of scoreless, three-hit ball before the bullpen failed in a 2-1 loss

Lewis beat the Yankees in the clinching Game 6 in the AL championship series last year, and doesn't mind the road.

Garcia had plenty of must-win starts in September, steeling him for the postseason.
