Billy Southworth and Les Bell Homer in Cardinals 50th Win of the Season

Cardinals 6, Giants 5  (50-43)

Like yesterday’s game, this one went eleven innings but it was the Cardinals who came out on top.  In the process they salvaged a split with the Giants and won their 50th game of the season.  The Cardinals scored one run in the bottom of the ninth to send the game into extra innings, then were forced to answer with a run in the tenth to keep the game going.  Then in the bottom of the eleventh, Tommy Thevenow drove home Taylor Douthit with a walk off RBI single to end the game.

Jesse Haines went eight innings and he was relieved by Art Reinhart in the ninth.  Reinhart got the win.  Les Bell and Billy Southworth both homered for the Cardinals and Bell finished the game with three hits and three runs.
