The St. Louis squirrel a better runner than Felix Pie?

October 06, 2011|By Matt Vensel

A squirrel scurrying across home plate was the story of Wednesday's NLDS game in St. Louis. The critter has become an Internet sensation after it stole home on Phillies pitcher Roy Oswalt, who got the loss as the Cardinals forced a Game 5 with a 5-3 win. OK, so it wasn't technically a steal of home because it ran down the first base line, but I think we can all agree the squirrel is still a smarter baserunner than former Orioles enigma Felix Pie.
