Cardinals claw out a win thanks to rally cat

Cardinals claw out a win thanks to rally cat

The team was trailing Kansas City by just one run, with Yadier Molina at the plate.

A Cardinals employee chased the cat down.

Afterward, Cardinals Manager Mike Matheny (a.k.a. Mike Catheny) said he doesn't like most cats, but he sure likes this cat.

Somehow during the bottom of the sixth, a stray cat managed to get on the field somewhere near the third base line.

It is now unknown when Rally Cat is at.

The St. Louis Cardinals received an unexpected assist from a stray cat en route to winning their fifth straight game on Wednesday. Lorenzo Cain's double to right-center field scored Whit Merrifield.

The Cardinals look to complete the four game sweep of the Royals Thursday at Busch.

Merrifield made it 3-0 when he scored on Molina's throwing error in the second. It's a lead they never gave up.

Leake, the Cardinals' starter, allowed five runs on 11 hits in five innings. In the 2011, a Rally Squirrel interrupted Game 4 of the National League Division Series against the Phillies - running across the pitchers mound, MLB.com reported. Matt Bowman got the win in relief and Trevor Rosenthal posted his ninth save.

Hammel pitched decently Friday night in a 5-2 loss to Seattle, permitting six hits and three runs in 6 1/3 innings, with a walk and three strikeouts. The first four Royals batters collected hits. Cardinals CF Dexter Fowler batted in the cleanup spot for the first time this year and only the 27th time in his 1,148 games.

Harris waited into the early morning at Citygarden trying to lure the animal with treats - taking a break to share her story with Cardinals fans at a local bar, she said.
