St Louis Car­di­nals ask for help in find­ing rally cat

Kuwait Times - - SPORTS -

The St. Louis Car­di­nals are look­ing for their rally cat. The feisty fe­line be­came an in­ter­net sen­sa­tion Wed­nes­day night, sprint­ing onto the field at Busch Sta­dium with the bases loaded for the Car­di­nals with two outs in the sixth in­ning. The cat emerged from near the vis­i­tors’ dugout on the third-base side and raced into the out­field, the fur on its tail stand­ing on end. Roy­als cen­ter fielder Lorenzo Cain stood, smil­ing, with a hand on his hip as the cat sprinted past him. Kansas City was lead­ing 5-4 at the time and play was de­layed for a cou­ple min­utes while the grounds crew col­lected the cat. On the first pitch af­ter play re­sumed, Yadier Molina hit a grand slam off Peter Moy­lan to give the Car­di­nals an 8-5 lead. The cat was in­stantly dubbed #Ral­lyCat on Twit­ter, and St. Louis went on to win its fifth vic­tory in a row. The Car­di­nals said Thurs­day that a fan grabbed the cat af­ter its grounds crew em­ployee put the an­i­mal down to re­ceive treat­ment for scratches and bites.—AP
