|Molina has Four Hits, Cardinals Beat Royals in 10
|KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Colby Rasmus drew a bases-loaded walk, his fifth free pass of the day, that forced in the go-ahead run in the 10th, and the St. Louis Cardinals walked 13 times in a wacky 9-8 victory Sunday over the Kansas City Royals.
Every walk Rasmus drew was off a different pitcher. The Cardinals had 12 hits, a hit batter and reached on an error in the 4 hour, 9 minute game.
Yadier Molina had a double, two singles and a two-run triple as the Cardinals took the always-lively interleague series between state rivals two games to one.
Each team used seven pitchers. Royals manager Ned Yost and catcher Matt Treanor were both ejected.
