June 6, 1956: The Cardinals Beat The Giants in Extras

On June 6, 1956, it took the Cardinals 11 innings to beat the New York Giants 3-2 at Busch Stadium. Trailing 2-1 with 2 outs in the 9th, Stan Musial doubled, then was lifted for a pinch runner by the name of Jackie Brandt.  Ken Boyer stepped to the plate and knocked Brandt in from second to tie it up. Brandt stayed in the game and picked up the game winning rbi in the 11th. The 22 year old rookie only played in 27 games for the Redbirds before Frank "Trader" Lane sent him to the New York Giants.
