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.
