scary squirrel world Game Four Squirrel 

10-05-2011: Phillies-Cardinals National League Playoff Game 4

An odd moment in Wednesday's 5-3 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals at Busch Stadium left some people feeling a bit "squirrely." In the bottom of the fifth inning, a rambunctious squirrel darted across home plate as Roy Oswalt was delivering a pitch to the Cards' Skip Schumaker. Oswalt tried to use the interruption to get the call -- it was a ball -- thrown out, as did manager Charlie Manuel (mind you, the Phils were losing 3-2 at the time). The ump, however, wouldn't budge.
