It was a 4 - 3 victory in 3:19 for the Cardinals over the Diamondbacks tonight at Busch Stadium. For the Redbirds this game started and ended in rare fashion. The first batter of the game for the Cards hit a homerun on the first pitch he saw. That has not happened for St. Louis since 2008. The last play of the game occurred in the bottom of the ninth inning with the bases loaded, 1 out and the score tied at 3 apiece. The ball was chopped to the third baseman who threw home for the second out if the inning. As the catcher was throwing the ball to first base he was clipped on the leg by the baserunner. As that happened he threw the ball into right field for an error and the Cards won. The start was rare and the finish was rare. A weird game indeed.
