The cat made his presence felt by running onto the field and interrupting play in the sixth inning of St. Louis' game against the Kansas City Royals.
Less than 24 hours after the exciting win, the Cardinals released a statement regarding the matter, with the woman who claimed to own the cat having lost track of the animal in City Garden.
Fans immediately recognized the cat's stroll across the outfield as good luck and nicknamed him "Rally Cat" due to his obvious divine intervention to help spark the Cardinals' sixth inning rally.

On Wednesday night (Thursday NZ Time), the Rally Cat was born. Lorenzo Cain's double to right-center field scored Whit Merrifield. After leaving the field, everyone wanted to know what he did with the cat. He bested Cincinnati 4-1 Saturday night with a three-hit, one-run effort over six innings.
Trevor Rosenthal pitched the ninth to garner his ninth save. Merrifield's four hits tied his career high. Melky with the huge home run there to give us the lead. Kansas City SS Alcides Escobar started his 284th straight game, tying Baltimore's Miguel Tejada (2004-05) for the longest streak in the majors at the position since the Orioles' Cal Ripken Jr. started 2,216 consecutive games from 1982 to 1996.
