Cardinals Release Statment On Rally Cat, Last Seen in City Garden

When the game resumed, Molina hit a grand slam on the very next pitch, and the lead held for a St. Louis victory.

A not-so friendly-feline decided it needed a closer look at Wednesday night's game between the Kansas City Royals and the St. Louis Cardinals.

But the cat has since gone missing, and the Cardinals are hoping to find it. A fan reportedly took it from the stadium, claiming it was hers.

Play continued and Molina crushed the next pitch he saw for a grand slam, putting his squad up 8-5 - the final score of the game.

Becky said she's aware of baseball and superstitions - especially when it comes to the Cardinals - and was searching for the cat to make sure it is safe and well-cared for. Royals center fielder Lorenzo Cain stood, smiling, with a hand on his hip as the cat sprinted past him.

The Rally Squirrel became the St Louis Cardinals' unofficial mascot during their 2011 World Series championship run. He then let the cat down outside of Gate 3 near the Stan Musial statue and went immediately to first aid to attend to his scratch and bite injuries. He bested Cincinnati 4-1 Saturday night with a three-hit, one-run effort over six innings.

Cardinals righty Mike Leake was pounded for 11 hits and five runs (four earned) over five innings.

And it will likely have no shortage of Cardinal fans willing to give it a home. Kansas City SS Alcides Escobar started his 284th straight game, tying Baltimore's Miguel Tejada (2004-05) for the longest streak in the majors at the position since the Orioles' Cal Ripken Jr. started 2,216 consecutive games from 1982 to 1996.

The team said, according to reports, the woman lost track of the cat in Citygarden - a park in St. Louis.
