White singlehandedly subdues Cardinals

Tony LaRussa may fashion himself a genius, but anybody who would continually tempt fate by pitching to the force that is Hank White deserves what he gets.  In an 8-4 extra inning win over the Cardinals in St. Louis, Hank went 4-5, raising his average to a season-high .211, with a homer and two RBI.  White also threw out St. Louis pinch runner Hector Luna to end the game…only to have umpire Phil Cuzzi try to give the Cardinals a win with a bad call.  One batter later, Hank expertly blocked home plate on a throw from Jeromy Burnitz, only to have ESPN doctor the replay footage to make it appear that Luna had touched home plate.

White was on deck, scaring the pants off Cardinals Nation when Neifi Perez hit the game winning grand slam in the top of the 10th.
