The St.Louis Cardinals have been playing well as of late winning seven of their last ten games to get into second place in the National League Central division race.

The Redbirds are only 1.5 games behind the defending World Series Champions Cubs and on Wednesday night, a kitten showed up on the field right before Yadier Molina hit a grand slam.

A star was born and 'Rally Cat' was his nickname. Unfortunately, in a sad turn of events is currently lost.

The Cardinals released a statement on Friday that they are actively looking for the cat.

As everyone observed during last night's game, Lucas Hackmann, a member of our grounds crew, secured the stray cat in the outfield and exited the playing surface at the left field gate and walked up towards the main concourse at Gate 3. He then let the cat down outside of Gate 3 near the Stan Musial statue and went immediately to first aid to attend to his scratch and bite injuries. At that point, as our ushers tried to contain the cat, a fan grabbed it and claimed it was hers. As she left the ballpark, our security team caught up with her and asked her some questions. She then abruptly left with the cat. We understand from media accounts that the women intended to take it home and care for it, but lost track of it in City Gardens. We are hopeful someone will find the cat and contact us so we can properly care for it. Our ground crew is working on developing a stray animal protocol to ensure the safety of both crew and animal should this happen again. In the meantime, the Cardinals are looking to scratch and claw their way back to the top of the divisional standings.

This is not a joke and such a bizarre media release by the Cardinals.

Update: They have found Rally Cat!
