Cards Win “Wild” Game at Atlanta

October 6th, 2012 - By Charles Choate

The one game Wild Card playoff between the St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves lived up to its name.

In a night that saw three Atlanta errors, and a 19 minute game delay due to debris thrown onto the field after a controversial umpire call, the St. Louis Cardinals advanced to the Division Championship with a 6-3 win.

The Redbirds had to come from behind, after a 2-run David Ross home run in the 2nd inning.

St. Louis tied the game, and took the lead in the 3rd inning, on a sacrifice RBI from David Freese.

The Cardinals made the score 4-2 in the 6th, when Matt Holliday delivered a long ball to left field.

St. Louis tacked on 2-additional runs in the 7th inning, before the outrage poured out in Atlanta in the 8th inning, over a infield fly call against the Braves that resulted in the protest of the game.

Cardinal closer Jason Motte was called on to close out the game, as the players then rushed to the clubhouse to celebrate.

St. Louis now takes on the Washington Nationals at Busch Stadium in a best-of-five series.

The first game will be Sunday afternoon, with broadcast time on 1049 KYTN set for 1:12.
