ST. LOUIS, MO (KPLR)-- So did you get any work done Monday afternoon or did you sneak a look at the Cardinal game at the office?

You may have been nervous watching the win or go home game.  Folks in the Cardinal front office can probably multiply your feelings by 100.

Most of the people who work behind the scenes for the ball club got to take the afternoon off and watch the big game.

They had peanuts, popcorn cracker jackets and a sundae bar.

But most of all, hopes of bringing the playoffs back to Busch Stadium.

There was an edge to this crowd you don`t feel in your average sports bar. I talked with team President Bill Dewitt just as the game was beginning.

“I`m a little nervous. I`m always a little nervous with playoffs games. This is an elimination game. There`s a little extra. We go home if we don`t win. At the same time wait a minute you kind of think if we can win this one we come home who knows,” said DeWitt.

The Cardinals beat the Pirates 2-1. The series is tied 2-2. Game 5 is Wednesday.
