Greene reached on a two-out infield hit for his third single of
the game, stole second and advanced on catcher Bryan Pena's wild
throw. He tried to score on another off-line throw by second
baseman Chris Getz, but third baseman Moustakas made a strong throw
to nip Greene at home.
The crazy finish came after Yadier Molina eased up on what he
believed was an infield hit to start the St. Louis ninth. The
catcher belatedly sped up after Alcides Escobar's diving stop, and
the shortstop made a strong throw to first as Molina banged his
helmet with his hands.
