The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Houston Astros 8-0 on Wednesday night to handle their part. Then, about an hour after they won, the historic comeback was complete when the Atlanta Braves lost 4-3 to the Philadelphia Phillies in 13 innings. The Cardinals will get a day off instead of having to play an extra regular season game.
They will now square off against the Philadelphia Phillies this Saturday at Citizens Bank Park. The Phillies will send Roy Halladay to the mound while Kyle Lohse is due up in the rotation, but also have Jaime Garcia available.
Following the Braves defeat, Cardinals broadcasters John Rooney and Mike Claiborne were in the Redbird’s clubhouse at Minute Maid Park to get reaction during the celebration.
