I admit, down 5-1 in the bottom of the eighth, I wrote off the Cardinals coming back against the San Diego Padres.
Yet they found a way to score five over the final two innings for a 6-5 win Thursday night at Busch Stadium.
Aledmys Diaz extended his on-base streak to 24 games and drove home the winning run to complete the come-from-behind win.
Diaz and Gyrko continue to crush SD pitching.
The Cardinals tied the game with a four-run eighth inning with an RBI single by Gyorko, followed by a three-run homer from Stephen Piscotty, his 14th.
Tommy Pham started the ninth inning off with a double, and the Padres intentionally walked Greg Garcia to bring up Jeremy Hazelbaker, who advanced the runners with a sacrifice bunt. The Padres were forced intentionally walk Gyorko and Diaz singled making him now 15-for-24 against Padres pitching.
