VIdeo: Jeremy Guthrie helps Cardinals ground crew during rain delay

The Royals and Cardinals were up "burning the midnight oil" Thursday night.

The intrastate rivals played deep into the early morning hours of Friday after a pair of lengthy rain delays pushed the game's ending to around three o'clock local time.

The game itself took just 2 hours and 27 minutes while the two delays combined to take 5 hours and 32 minutes.

As you might imagine, both sides were ready to go home before too long. So, in an effort to speed up the process, Royals starting pitcher Jeremy Guthrie decided to lend a helping hand to the Cardinals ground crew after his team took a 4-2 lead before a ninth inning rain delay.

"Got swag?" Apparently, Guthrie does when it comes to battling Mother Nature.

  1. I hung in there through the entire delay, and couldn't stop laughing when I saw the Royals making a bigger effort than the pathetic St.Louis ground crew. It was blatantly obvious they (STL) were doing everything they could to get the game called in the Cardinals favor. Whining ground crew chief, whining manager, priceless. Kudos to the umpiring crew, who weren't having any of it, not to mention that they had a 200 mile drive staring them in the face with a 3:30AM departure time.
