Cardinals rally for two runs in the bottom of the ninth, handing Jeanmar Gomez his first blown save. The inning included Cardinals pitcher Carlos Martinez pinch-running and getting thrown out after rounding third base too far. The Phillies decided to pitch to Matt Holliday with first base open instead of the slumping Randal Grichuk and Holliday delivered the winning hit.

Raptors F Luis Scola on PG Kyle Lowry via Toronto Star: "His shot looks right, everything looks right. The only thing that looks bad to me is his body language. He is beaten. And he shouldn't be. There's only two players as to why we're here, and it's him and DeMar DeRozan. He's the soul of our team. He's everything to us. I don't care if he misses every shot from now on. I'm ok with that. I'll lose with him. I'll lose with him because he took me all the way here."
