Louis Cardinals ask for help in finding the rally cat

With first base open and only one out required to get out of the inning, Kansas City intentionally walked center fielder Dexter Fowler, bringing veteran catcher Yadier Molina to the plate with the bases loaded.

A stadium employee eventually chased the cat onto the warning track, but the kitty wasn't going down without a fight, and was biting and scratching the Cardinals' employee, MLB.com reported.

Molina wasn't phased by the incident, and ended up hitting a grand slam home run. It was the sixth inning, with the Cardinals trailing the Kansas City Royals.

Initial reports said that the Cardinals took the cat to the Humane Society, where it would be safe - but on Thursday morning they denied they had the cat, presumably after dozens of people called to adopt Rally Cat.

Harris, 35, a manager at Ice & Fuel in Kirkwood, said she saw the cat on the field and immediately thought, "I need to find that feline".

"Here's our little hero, the Rally Cat", the station said.

The St. Louis Cardinals, hoping to "scratch and claw their way" into the playoffs, are looking for "Rally Cat" after it reportedly went missing late Wednesday night.

St Louis' Rally Cat walks past Kansas City centrefielder Lorenzo Cain. After a series of events, the Cardinals say it is missing. He bested Cincinnati 4-1 Saturday night with a three-hit, one-run effort over six innings.

Brandon Maurer (0-1) was tagged with the loss after allowing the only two men he faced in the sixth to reach base. The first four Royals batters collected hits. Melky with the huge home run there to give us the lead.

Don't tell their mascot Fredbird, but it looks like the St. Louis Cardinals may have a new good luck charm on their hands.
