1) Royals Blew Two Save Chances Before Chien-Ming Wang Earned The Win

The KC Royals looked certain to win the game after reliever Wade Davis entered the game in the 9th inning with a one-run lead. After all, Davis had only blown one save all season, and sported an ERA under 1.00.

What could go wrong?

Wade Davis opened the inning by walking Kolten Wong, allowing a one-out hit to Jed Gyorko, and then giving up a two-out single to shallow left field to Jhonny Peralta. Sigh.

After the Cardinals gifted the Kansas City Royals with run by committing two errors in the 10th inning, reliever Joakim Soria blew his third save opportunity by allowing Stephen Piscotty to blast a solo home run to tie the game at 2-2.

Chien-Ming Wang entered the game in the 11th and pitched two clean innings with one strikeout to earn the win when the KC Royals scored in the top of the 12th. Wang is 5-0 as the Royals garbage man this season.
