Daily brief (10/28): Top picks from the Springfield media

It doesn’t matter whether or not you’re a baseball fan: Last night’s Game 6 in St. Louis was a stunner, with the Cardinals pulling it out in the 11th inning with a 10-9 win over the Texas Rangers.

Check out announcer Joe Buck’s homage to his father with the call of the winning home run.

Today will be sunny, with a high of 57. But temperatures will dive into the 20s tonight some parts of the Ozarks, and the National Weather Service has issued a freeze warning.

Tomorrow will be sunny and a little warmer, with the high topping the 60-degree mark. Temperatures will gradually warm into the mid-60s into next week. No rain is expected.
