Here was today's timeline for the Royals/ Cardinals game: 1:16 pm - 1st pitch 3:46 pm - Billy Butler hits a 2 out 0 - 2 pitch for a game tying (2 - 2) homerun in the top of the ninth inning. 5:35 pm - Yuniesky Betancourt hits a double to give the Royals a 3 - 2 lead in the top of the 14th inning. 5:56 pm - Yadier Molina ties the score with a 2-out single in the bottom of the 14th inning. 5:59 pm - Cardinals batter strikes out with runners on 1st and 2nd to end the inning. At that point I had never heard a TV truck so quiet. Then someone said "I have never seen a TV truck so stunned." 6:07 pm - Betancourt hits a 2-run homerun in the top of the 15th to give the Royals a 5 - 3 lead. 6:16 pm - 5 hours after the first pitch of the game the game ends. A stunning victory for the Royals. A stunning game for the TV crews.
