Royals need Hammel to step up as Cardinals go for sweep

One pitch after a cat ran on the field and delayed the game, Yadier Molina got his claws into the Kansas City Royals.

Hackmann told SportsCenter on Thursday morning that he took the cat up the main concourse and put it down outside the stadium gate near the Stan Musial statue as his hand was "covered in blood" from bites and scratches.

The St. Louis Cardinals pulled out a dramatic comeback victory over the Kansas City Royals on Wednesday night, and they may owe it all to a certain feline friend.

The cat was instantly dubbed #RallyCat on Twitter, and St. Louis went on to win.

Harris, 35, a manager at Ice & Fuel in Kirkwood, said she saw the cat on the field and immediately thought, "I need to find that feline". "I looked at Lorenzo Cain, he was like laughing at me, all the players were laughing at me".

Sheriff: Mom, 2 kids captive in Virginia home for 2 years
Investigators determined the woman and children were not held with any sort of bondage or cages, but were not permitted to leave. They told deputies they had been held against their will for more than two years, according to the sheriff's office.

Jose Martinez rifled a 419-foot homer to center off reliever Scott Alexander in the fourth to give St. Louis its first lead. As for Lynn, he's given up one earned run or fewer in five of his last six starts, going at least 6.0 innings in all of them.

The break in the game was apparently just what the Cardinals needed. Adam Wacha pitched six innings and allowed just three runs to get his ninth win of the year. The first four Royals batters collected hits.

Harris waited into the early morning at Citygarden trying to lure the animal with treats - taking a break to share her story with Cardinals fans at a local bar, she said.

Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar ended an 0-for-20 streak with a single in the sixth inning.

The team said, according to reports, the woman lost track of the cat in Citygarden - a park in St. Louis.
