Getting "Red-y": St. Louis anticipates Game 7 of the World Series

The 2011 World Series followed the tradition of turning the water red at The Runner's fountain.

The fountain at Kiener Plaza in downtown St. Louis runs red on Oct. 28, 2011 in recognition of the St. Louis Cardinals' appearance in the 2011 World Series. Game 7 of the series is tonight.

In Kiener Plaza in downtown St. Louis Friday afternoon locals mixed with out-of-towners taking pictures of the red fountain.

Those on their lunch break, including Missi Wood and Kerry Anne, admitted they were a bit tired from the late night Game 6 World Series win over the Texas Rangers.

But Anne says she never doubted the Cardinals would pull it off.

“I was calm the whole game,” Anne said. “They were like, ‘last out’, and I was like, ‘we’re going to win.’”

Wood says tonight they’ll come downtown to celebrate.

“When we win, I think downtown will be amazing. I think it’s going to be really intense,” Wood said.

Chris Carpenter will be the starting pitcher for the Cards.

A sprained wrist will keep outfielder Matt Holliday out of the game, and rookie Adron Chambers will replace him on the roster.

If the Cardinals win, it would be the team’s 11th World Series championship.

The Texas Rangers have never won the World Series.

The game starts at 7:05.
