Kelly also made an impressive barehanded snag on a Shane Victorino groundball:
Matt Carpenter led off the bottom half of the inning with a single. Carlos Beltran followed with a drag bunt, failing to reach base but advancing Carpenter to second. Matt Holliday then roped a single to right field, driving in Carpenter for the first run of the game.
Matt Adams and Yadier Molina followed with back-to-back singles, which plated Holliday for the second run of the game. Peavy recovered after the fourth single, recording two consecutive outs to end the frame.
Cardinals hitters were very aggressive in their half of the inning, noted by Buster Olney of ESPN:
Think maybe the Cardinals' hitters were in attack mode: Swung at 12 of the 21 pitches Peavy threw that inning.— Buster Olney (@Buster_ESPN) October 27, 2013
St. Louis enters the top of the second with a 2-0 advantage.
