Things got a little weird when Fredbird, Darth Vader and friends started doing the Gangnam Style dance in center field.
But it wasn't just the fans who were able to enjoy the fun. Members of the FOX Sports Midwest production team put together some rather interesting interpretations of current Cardinals players fused with Star Wars characters. (See if you can figure out the character and the player before looking at the caption below each image.)
Unfortunately, lightsaber wavers and Wookie mask wearers did nothing for the Cardinals on the field. Nope, not one bit. Starting pitcher Shelby Miller was knocked from the game just two pitches in after a line drive off the bat of the Dodgers' Carl Crawford struck him on his pitching elbow. That unfortunate situation resulted in the Cardinals using their next-day starter, Jake Westbrook, and St. Louis was eventually defeated 13-4.
It was clear the Force was not with the Cardinals on this particular night. But at least their fans had a good time, which is a positive considering the time of game was a cool 3 hours, 47 minutes. A long one it was.
