Wow. It happened. The St. Louis Cardinals completed one of the most memorable comebacks of all time when they won the 2011 World Series in seven games against the Texas Rangers. Down 10.5 games to the Wild Card leader Atlanta Braves on Aug. 25, the Cardinals came back the last month of the season to take the National League Wild Card on the last day of the season.
