Panda's leadoff homer makes it 5-0 in the 8th inning

Cardinals flamethrower Trevor Rosenthal blew away the Giants in the sixth and seventh innings. Mitchell Boggs, in the eighth, had no such luck. Pablo Sandoval led off and, after working the count full, did this:

Pandamonium! Well, maybe if they'd been in San Francisco. Considering the Cardinals had been losing by four runs since the fourth inning, there were probably just a bunch of glum fans getting more glum while Sandoval rounded the bases to make the score 5-0.

Boggs did get out of the inning with no more damage, so the Cards have six outs to make up five runs. It's not looking too good for the home team, which is probably ticketed for the long trip to California.
