Rasmus' HR lifts Cards past Giants

BY foxsports • July 2, 2009

Colby Rasmus got a break when third baseman Pablo Sandoval dropped his foul pop in the 10th inning. Then Bob Howry had to come after the rookie with a full count and Albert Pujols on deck.

None of that was on Rasmus' mind when he led off the 10th inning with his first game-ending home run, lifting the St. Louis Cardinals to a 2-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants. His only concern was not chasing Howry's split-fingered fastball like he did earlier in the at-bat.
