The Phillies played the Cardinals last night, but for the second straight game a squirrel stole the show. This time, the creature darted right in front of the batter's box and dashed into the stands at Bush Stadium in St. Louis. The Cardinals 5-3 victory was celebrated on Twitter by a new user called @BushSquirrel. He wished the Cards luck in Game 5 with the hash tag Rally Squirrel. It's MORNING EDITION.
