Bottom of the fifth. Cardinals second baseman Skip Schumaker seemed to have an issue with a muscle in his ass or upper leg. Trainer came out. All seemed fine.

One and one count. Roy Oswalt throws a pitch. Squirrel runs past home plate and into the stands. Oswalt complains. Nothing much happens. Inning over with no damage. Score still 3-2 Cardinals.

Coincidence? Yeah right. Shingles do crazy things to a man's strategy-forming brain lobes.
