oh god the cardinals are never going to go away they're never going to die they're never going to lose again this isn't going to end they'll just keep doing this and doing this until the end of time when there isn't baseball anymore but there is nothing but cardinals running around and around the bases forever and ever in perpetuity until the universe collapses upon itself and there is nothing but cardinals nothing but cardinals.
Before Drew Storen came in the game for the Nationals in the bottom of the ninth, announcer Dick Stockton mentioned that this was Storen's third game in as many days. When asked before the game how he'd respond to a third game of work, Storen responded with something like "WELP, I'D SURE GIVE IT EVERYTHING I'VE GOT. I MEAN, I'D KIND OF HAVE TO FIND IT IN ME SOMEWHERE, RIGHT?" Those aren't his exact words, but you get the point.
Storen entered his third consecutive game for just the second time since coming back from surgery. Things did not go well. After a Beltran double, the Nats got two outs, which pretty much ruined things for the Cardinals, right? They'd never be able to come back with two outs in an elimination game.
And, again with two outs, Pete Kozma singled to right for the lead:
The Cardinals have done it again. Good god.
