KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- Colby Rasmus drew a bases-loaded walk -- his fifth free pass of the day -- that forced in the go-ahead run in the 10th, and the St. Louis Cardinals walked 13 times in a wacky 9-8 victory Sunday over the Kansas City Royals.

Every walk Rasmus drew was off a different pitcher. The Cardinals had 12 hits, a hit batter and reached on an error in the 4 hour, 9 minute game.

Yadier Molina had a double, two singles and a two-run triple as the Cardinals took the always-lively interleague series between state rivals two games to one.

Each team used seven pitchers. Royals manager Ned Yost and catcher Matt Treanor were both ejected.
