Jays, Cardinals postponed due to rain

Coghlan's slide didn't end up affecting the outcome of St. Louis' loss much, as Jose Martinez drew the Cardinals even with a home run in the bottom of the inning.

"I was just glad I didn't break my neck". Coghlan raced around the bases and decided that he was going to try and score on the play. Kevin Pillar followed by tripling over the head of right fielder Stephen Piscotty, setting the highlight reel in motion. "I saw it was going to beat me, and then, probably the last step or two, I saw Yadi go down".

"When I saw Coghlan do a front flip over Molina, it was like I saw a unicorn or something", Estrada said. That play led MLB to institute a rule prohibiting catchers from blocking the plate-and it also eventually led to Coghlan pulling off one of the most acrobatic plays you'll ever see on a baseball field. The teams have surrendered an identical 165 hits, 61 walks and 82 runs, and Toronto has given up 21 homers to St. Louis' 20.

If you were not tuned into the Blue Jays telecast last night you arguably missed the best run-scoring sequence at home plate by Chris Coghlan who somersaulted over Yadier Molina landing on the plate to avoid the tag from the catcher.

In Monday's late innings, "Let's go Blue Jays" chants drowned out Angels-centric cheering.

We have all had these moments - moments when you can not believe what you just saw. Cecil struck out the next hitter and then was 0-2 on the following batter to get within a strike of two outs and a chance to get out of the jam. "Getting the guys in, we've got to get better". He pinch hit in the 11th inning and hit a double, which came to be the winning run of the game as the Cardinals landed their fourth error in the game.

St. Louis got on the board in the first inning thanks to an RBI single from Jedd Gyorko to drive in Dexter Fowler.

After the starters left, it came down to the bullpens, Coghlan's leap of faith and an unexpected contribution with the bat from a pitcher who rarely hits.

Many people believe baseball to be boring to watch, since it is so many innings - it takes a special kind of person to enjoy the game.
