April 21, 1991: Watch Out Daulton... Here Comes Ray!!!

     On April 21, 1991, the Cardinals prevailed 7-6 over the Philadelphia Phillies in 10 innings at Busch. The winning run scored in a rather untraditional way when Ray Lankford scored from second on a groundout off the bat of Gerald Perry. When Perry hit the ball Lankford was off and running, he took the turn at third, then came barreling into Darren Daulton who could not hold onto the ball at the plate. The Cardinals found themselves trailing 6-1 in the contest before scoring four runs in the seventh, tying it in the ninth, then winning it on the dramatic play at the plate in the tenth.
