Fox Sports Midwest to re-air St. Louis Cardinals games


As they have over the past few years, Fox Sports Midwest is set to re-air St. Louis Cardinals games on December 25 for the fourth straight year.

Not surprisingly, the games have been edited down to two hours but rest assured that the highlights are not likely to be cut out of the games that will be aired. The marathon is presented by Lumiere Place Casino and Hotels.

The marathon of games will start at 1 PM Central and will stretch into the evening and end at 11 PM Central.

Here is the schedule for Thursday:

1 p.m.: Diamondbacks at Cardinals (May 20) — Adam Wainwright throws a complete game one-hitter.

3 p.m.: Giants at Cardinals (May 31) — Oscar Taveras homers in his second career at-bat.

5 p.m.: Reds at Cardinals (Aug. 18) — Jhonny Peralta drives in the winner in the 10th.

7 p.m.: Cubs at Cardinals (Aug. 31) — Cards overcome five-run deficit to win 9-6.

9 p.m.: Cardinals at Brewers (Sept. 4) — Great defense and clutch offense help Cards win important, tight game.

It’s a shame that either Game 5 of the National League Division Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers or Game 2 of the 2014 National League Championship Series against the San Francisco Giants will not be included.

If you aren’t going to the movies on Thursday, baseball makes for a nice alternative.
