Rally Cat Fills in for Squirrel To Help Cardinals Win

We all remember the 2011 NLDS, when a squirrel descended from the squirrel heavens to bestow good fortune on the St. Louis Cardinals in their quest for the World Series ring, which they eventually won.

Unfortunately, the Cards are currently a game and a half behind the Chicago Cubs in the NL Central, to make no mention of the dominant Dodgers of Los Angeles in the NL West. So the Cardinals need more than a squirrel to turn this season around.

Enter the Rally Cat:

The Cardinals were trailing their cross-state rivals 5-4 in the bottom of the 6th, but were able to turn it around after what I can only assume is a miniature bobcat ran onto the field and worked some voodoo magic on Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain. A Busch Stadium groundskeeper ran out to remove the cat, which the cat was not having any of, fighting literally tooth and nail to stay in the game.

Immediately after the cat was corralled and removed from the field, Yadir Molina hit a grand slam to win the game 8-5.

I can only imagine if their post-season hopes come down to the final week of regular season play, they’ll arrange for an actual bear cub to storm the field during September 26th’s Budweiser Bash when they host the Chicago Cubs.
