ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)– It was a nail biting game. Cardinals pitcher Michael Wacha almost achieved a no hitter. The Cardinals rookie came within one out of a no-hitter at Busch.
The good news is that the Cardinals won the game. Wacha was in control recording nine strikeouts against the Washington Nationals. A huge moment came with two outs in the 8th inning — The Nationals hit a fly ball to left.
It looked like trouble, but Shane Robinson came up big, making the catch for the out.
