The St. Louis Cardinals got on the scoreboard first with a solo home run by Allen Craig in the first inning off of Matt Harrison. Then after three scoreless innings both offenses came alive, first it was the Cardinals who scored four runs in the top of the fourth inning. All of the runs came off of starter Harrison, however there is some controversy over a non-call ou that would have resulted in a double play.
Take a look below for yourself, Mike Napoi applies the tag on the back of the shoulder and then on the head a full step before Matt Holliday reached the base, but he was ruled safe.
The next batter was Lance Berkman who singled to right field, and that was followed by a double from David Freese to score Holliday to put the Cardinals up 2-0. Then the Rangers intentionally walked Yadier Molina to load the bases then a ball hit toward Napoli who threw a wild ball towards home which allowed for two runs to score. With the five-run fourth inning the Rangers pulled Harrison for Scott Feldman.
The Rangers came back in the bottom of the fourth inning, first off of solo home run by Michael Young and then Nelson Cruz hit a two run shot to get the Rangers back in this game now only down 5-3.
