The Cardinals grabbed the Game 3 victory in the World Series due to an obstruction call, at home in Missouri’s Busch Stadium.


The Red Sox went down with a dramatic finish when Cardinals’ first baseman Allen Craig scored the game winning run in the bottom of the ninth inning. When he tripped over the Sox’ Will Middlebrooks at third base, the base’s umpire called obstruction and awarded Craig home plate to complete his run. This stepped the Cardinals up 5-4, allowing them to win the game.


The Cardinals now lead the series 2-1 and will return to their home stadium tonight to face the Red Sox for Game 4.
