ST. LOUIS–Add one more thing to the to-do list for the grounds crew getting Busch Stadium ready for Thursday night’s game between the Cardinals and Brewers: find a new second base. The one used Wednesday appears to be getting a new home.

Former Cardinal Kolten Wong, back again in St. Louis playing for Milwaukee, successfully stole second in the top of the eighth inning off longtime former teammate Yadier Molina.

The Brewers tied the game in the top of the ninth, then won the game in extra innings 6-4.

Wong celebrated by taking second base off the diamond and with him into the clubhouse.

“Yadi, this is mine,” Wong said.

Our news partners at the St. Louis Post Dispatch report that the momento has been signed by Molina and is headed for Wong’s “mancave”.
