Cardinals Vs. Pirates Contest Sunday The Longest Ever, Apparently

Bad News: The St. Louis Cardinals lost the longest game they've ever played against the Pittsburgh Pirates Sunday, falling 6-3 after Barret Browning allowed a Pedro Alvarez homer in the 19th inning. It keeps them just out of reach of that Wild Card spot, and further back of the Pirates and the Hated Cincinnati Reds in the NL Central.

Good News: The Pirates are still well within reach of the Cardinals, who just got an outstanding outing from Jaime Garcia, a starter they'll need down the stretch. (They also have an off-day.)

Bad News: The Cardinals lost the second-longest game in series history, too, which means they're Cursed Forever.

Good News: The Cardinals lost that game in 1982, the only year the Whiteyball clubs won the World Series and one of the high points in Cardinals history. That's good!

Bad News: The toppings contain potassium benzoate. (That's bad.)
