The Cardinals lost on Thursday which was disappointing, however they were saved from losing more ground in the division by Bryce Harper. In the bottom of the ninth the Phillies were down two with the bases loaded for Harper. Then this happened:

The ball was CRUSHED; it was the definition of a no-doubter.

It was a delightful baseball moment only enhanced by the context of the situation:

It is pretty great moment and a really great call. So great, that people made remixes for it.

This might be my favorite non-Cardinals moment of the year. I am going to go watch it some more.
