September 13 in Cardinals History

 

  • ¬†Sportsman’s Park in 1951, the Cardinals split a three-team twin bill, beating the Giants 6-4 in a rescheduled afternoon game due to rain the day before, and then the Redbirds are blanked by the Braves in the regularly scheduled night game, 2-0. It is the first time since 1883 that a three-team twin bill has been played.
  • The Cardinals, in 1964, become only the second team in major league history this century to score at least one run in every inning as they rout Chicago, 15-2. A dropped pop-up in the top of the ninth secures St. Louis’ place in history.
  • The Cardinals purchased Mike Jackson from the Kansas City Royals in 1971.
  • The Cardinals in 1977, signed Jim Dwyer as a free agent.
