Thirteen Cardinals batted in the top of the sixth inning, beginning with a single from Harrison Bader, who was double switched into the game in the fourth in order to get 1 2/3 relief innings out of Michael Wacha. The frame was punctuated with Jose Martinez’s three-run, 414-foot blast to center field to take the lead.

When Martinez launched that home run, Wainwright ran to the dugout from the training room in shorts and a T-shirt to high-five every person in the dugout.

“As soon as we got a little momentum, it was like you could feel it,” Wainwright said. “I was in the training room and I could feel it. I was like, ‘Something’s fixin’ to happen here.’”

“Championship mentality, championship determination,” Cardinals manager Mike Shildt said. “That’s the quintessential definition of competition. You’re down 7-0, you fight like heck and there wasn’t a guy in that dugout who didn’t believe we could do it.”

The last time that the Cardinals won a game after trailing by seven-plus runs was also at Great American Ball Park and also involved 10 runs: May 12, 2002, when the Cardinals won, 10-8.

The 10 runs were the most runs in a single inning for St. Louis since July 21, 2012, against the Cubs at Busch Stadium. The last time the Cardinals scored 10 runs in an inning on the road was July 16, 2007, in Oakland.

Paul DeJong extended the lead with his second home run in as many days with a two-run shot in the seventh. He has now hit 12 home runs against the Reds since his Major League debut on May 28, 2017, which is tied for most in the Major Leagues since that date with Kyle Schwarber and Christian Yelich.

“It felt big to me,” Miller said. “Three days [pitching] in a row, I felt like I was running on fumes and giving it everything I had. You don’t want to mess up what those guys did to get us back in the game, and I needed to stop the momentum.”

Momentum was the word of Friday night’s game, whether it was building off of it or shutting it down. But it can also be the word of the Cardinals’ start to the second half of the season. St. Louis (50-46) has won six of eight since the All-Star break and is in second place in the National League Central, 2 1/2 games behind the Cubs.

Game over before it begins. Even if the Reds jump out to a lead, like the first two games of the series, it’s almost inevitable they’ll blow it. Castillo is very good so if they’re going to win a game it would probably be this one. However, after losing the first two games in such dramatic fashion and seeing their season spiral out of control, not sure they have the focus and determination at this point.

In the future teams will be 24 pitchers and one defensive specialist. The Shift Prophecy™ demands it.
