The fifth inning continued at the fourth inning pace as the St. Louis Cardinals scored three runs off of Scott Feldman. In the top of the fifth Feldman gave up three hits, walked two batters and most damaging was the three runs he allowed.
The big play was a two-run double by Yadir Molina which just barely stayed air down the left field line.
The Cardinals were able to regain the three runs that Fernando Salas allowed in the fourth inning and now the Rangers are playing catchup once again. Due to Rangers Ballpark being a hitter field, the Rangers were able to match the three runs that the the Cardinals scored in the top of the fifth.
The Ranges scored three runs on three straight at-bats starting with a Michael Young double that scored Josh Hamilton, Adrian Beltre followed up with a shallow single to left field that scored Josh Hamilton and then a sacrifice fly by Mike Napoli scored Young to give the Rangers six runs in the inning.
