Fri, 30 Sep 2016 00:40:28 EDT

The Cardinals' 4-3 walk-off win over the Reds on Thursday -- a crucial victory as St. Louis works to chase San Francisco in the Wild Card standings -- was laced with controversy, as Yadier Molina's RBI double, by rule, should not have been a game-winning hit at all.



Kluber on track for Game 1 or Game 2 of ALDS

He could be seen bleeding as Reds trainers looked him over.



Urias likely to pitch in NLDS in some capacity

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 01:47:56 EDT
