Cardinals catch Rally Cat fever after lucky feline dashes across field

Rallycat helps Cardinals with Grand Slam

A not-so friendly-feline decided it needed a closer look at Wednesday night's game between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals.

A Cardinals employee chased the cat down. That's because on the next pitch, Molina hit a grand slam to put the Cardinals ahead and eventually win the game.

Can the St. Louis Cardinals continue their winning ways over the Kansas City Royals when these two bring the series to St. Louis tonight at 8:15PM ET?

Later in the game, Rally Cat was spotted by a fan being taken away from the ballpark in a crate.

Despite getting attacked, the O'Fallon, Illinois native said he never thought about dropping the cat as he ran off the field.

Lorenzo Cain's double to right-center field scored Whit Merrifield. After taking the first pitch for a ball, Molina stepped out of the batter's box and pointed his bat toward the outfield where a field intruder was streaking across the outfield.

Meanwhile, the Cardinals are 2-6 in their last eight Thursday games, and 5-1 in Lynn's last six starts.

Jose Martinez gave St. Louis a 4-3 lead in the fourth inning with his ninth homer.

Leake was pounded for 11 hits and five runs (four earned) in five innings. Adam Wacha pitched six innings and allowed just three runs to get his ninth win of the year.
