The biggest hero of Wednesday night's Cardinals win over the Royals might have been something that didn't even suit up for the game.
With Kansas City leading 5-4 in the bottom of the 6th inning, a cat found its way on to the field. After being picked up by a stadium worker, the cat then proceeded to attack the worker.
