KANSAS CITY, Mo. Authentic Dan Girardi Jersey . -- Matt Carpenter had a career-high five hits for St. Louis on Wednesday night. The last of them was arguably the most important.

The Royals rallied with two runs in the ninth, and the game remained tied until the 11th, when Peter Bourjos worked a one-out walk off Royals reliever Kelvin Herrera (1-2).

Hes an unbelievable pitcher," Cain said. "When we tied the game, I thought we had them. We tried to spoil it for him at the end." Wainwright wasnt the only Cardinal to get on track, though.
