Busch Stadium: 8/23/07
Cardinals vs Marlins

The Cardinals had several bad plays in the field on this hot August evening, committing 4 errors not including a deep fly ball ruled as a hit that Chris Duncan should have caught. Anthony Reyes nearly escaped the subsequent bases loaded none-out jam, but got tagged for a grand slam by Josh Willingham on a 2-out 3-2 pitch. Rick Ankiel cut the lead to 4-1 on a sac fly in bottom half of the 3rd but the Cards couldn’t get anything else going offensively. Adam Wainwright bizarrely made a successful pinch-hit appearance in the 5th only to be caught stealing 2nd, while the Cards bullpen let the game get out of hand in the following inning.
