The Cardinals took a 7 - 4 lead with 3 runs in the top of the 8th inning only to give back the 3 runs to the Phillies in the bottom of the eighth on a 3-run homerun. I knew the Phillies were going to tie the game with a 3-run homerun. I even said "They are going to tie this thing up and we are going 20". I was wrong on the length of the game as the Phillies won the game in the 11th on an infield single. I knew the Phils were going to tie the game up after a Cardinals' reliever walked the first two batters in the bottom of the 8th. I believe in the "baseball Gods" and I knew that the payback for the two walks was going to be a bitch. It was.
