Fox Sports Midwest to air St. Louis Cardinals marathon on December 25th


Fox Sports Midwest will be airing a marathon of St. Louis Cardinals games on December 25th. It’s great news if there was a game that you really enjoyed but didn’t think to DVR when it aired. Unfortunately, the games have been edited to air in a two-hour window, rather than its entirety.


The marathon, which begins at noon Central time, kicks off with the August 26th matchup at Busch against the Cincinnati Reds. This was the game that Allen Craig powered the Cards to a win with a 7th inning grand slam. Carlos Martinez would get his first major league win in his career.
12 p.m.

Two hours, later, Shelby Miller is nearly perfect against the Colorado Rockies on May 10, 2013. Right fielder Eric Young Jr. led off the game with a single but after that Miller would not let another batter reach base.

At 4 PM, you can watch the St. Louis Cardinals walk-off in a win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on August 15, 2013. Matt Carpenter had a 4 for 5 day at the plate and was a home run shy of the cycle in the 6-5 win in 12 innings.

At 6 PM, you can relive the thrill of Michael Wacha‘s almost no-hitter on September 24, 2013, against the Washington Nationals. Wacha would have the same magic a few games later against the Pittsburgh Pirates in Game 4 of the National League Division Series.

The day started off with a game against the Reds and it ends with the September 4th game against who else but the Reds. After hitting a home run in the 14th inning of play, Matt Adams launched another extra-inning blast in the 16th inning and the Cards would win it 5-4. It was also the same game that Craig sprained his ankle.
