- There wasn’t a run scored until Jeff Francoeur hit a sac fly to score Jose Reyes in the top of the 19th
- Alex Cora had a game saving catch diving into the stands to catch a fly ball while he was playing first base, of all things
- The Cardinals loaded the bases three times in extras without scoring
- Of course, Yadier Molina singled home Albert Pujols in the bottom of the 19th to tie it
- K-Rod blew the save in the 19th
- Mike Pelfrey got the first save of his career by pitching the 20th inning
- Two position players pitched for the Cardinals: Felipe Lopez and Jeff Mather
This game was wild. There’s usually one of these crazy games every few years. So it’s good to get it out of the way early in the season. They’ll play on national TV again tomorrow night on ESPN in the rubber game of the series.
