Busch Stadium: 8/9/07
Cardinals vs Padres

Rick Ankiel returned to Busch Stadium on this hot August night, batting 2nd and playing RF for the Cardinals. It’s been nearly 3 years since his last regular season appearance with the big league club, and over 6 years since his last major league start (as a pitcher). Joel Pineiro pitched well for the Cardinals, outdueling the Padres’ Chris Young. Ankiel sent Busch Stadium into a frenzy with a 3-run homer in the 7th and the Cards cruised to a 5-0 win over San Diego.

    Great to see you back, Rick – especially after the way you tore it up at AAA. And you’re having an even better game today!

    I hear the San Diego Padres are close to signing Rick Ankiel. I think he’ll do great hitting behind A. Gonzalez
