Yadier Molina hit a grand slam after the incident and the Cardinals ended up winning 8–5. OBVIOUSLY, because of the good luck cat.

"We are feline pretty good!" the team tweeted. The Cardinals honored the cat's responsibility for the win with an emotional video.

We are feline pretty good! Remember the last time we had a rally animal? #RallyCat

"Rally Cat - Forever in our hearts," the footage concludes.

The Cardinals told BuzzFeed News in a statement that, in the confusion of the moment, Rally Cat escaped back into the night. "We are hopeful someone will find the cat and contact us so we can properly care for it," the Cardinals said.
