Heartland fans use superstitions to try to aid Cardinals in Game 6

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

We've got some superstitious fans here in the Heartland.

Diana Schwartz, our Facebook friend, said when she stays up until 9 and they goes to bed, they win. If she watches the whole game, they lose.

Valerie Reeds, another Facebook friend, said she is wearing the same outfit she wore back in 2011.

"This is my lucky shirt," said Sara Krim, a bartender in Cape Girardeau. "It's not even a Cardinals shirt, but the few random times I've worn it we've won."

"Yeah, this is Torty right here," Lance Fleming said. "He's our lucky charm over at Bel-Air. He's been here through every time the Cardinals have been through the series. He's lucky man. That's Torty."

Unfortunately, the superstitions didn't pull through this time. The Cardinals lost 6-1 to the Red Sox in Game 6 of the World Series.
