1922 Cardinals outfielder Rogers Hornsby hits home runs off Giant hurlers Jesse and Virgil Barnes. The homers served up by the brothers enable the 'Rajah' to set the National League record for round-trippers in a season with 42.
1926 The Cardinals clinch their first pennant in the franchise's 35-year history when they beat the Giants at the Polo Grounds. Billy Southworth's second-inning two-run home run off his former team proves to be the difference in St. Louis' 6-4 victory at the Polo Grounds.
1969 In the inaugural season of divisional play, the Mets clinch the first-ever National League East title. Gary Gentry fires a four-hitter, blanking the Cardinals, 6-0, in front of a frenzied Shea Stadium crowd, which spills onto the field en masse after the game to celebrate their team's amazing accomplishment.
2013 Cardinals rookie Michael Wacha, making his ninth career start, loses his no-hit bid with two outs in the ninth inning on Ryan Zimmerman’s infield single in the team's 2-0 victory over the Nationals at Busch Stadium. The 22 year-old Redbird right-hander, taken out of the game after the hit, becomes the third pitcher this season to have a no-hitter broken up with one out to go, joining Yu Darvish of the Ranger and the Giants’ Yusmeiro Petit, both who had perfect games after facing 26 batters.
