A long-time fixture at Busch Stadium has died.

Organist Ernie Hays passed away last night after collapsing at a Halloween party. Family members say the 77-year-old's health had been failing for some time.

It's not a World Series ring, but Yadier Molina is collecting baseball hardware. 

The St. Louis Cardinals' catcher won his fifth Rawlings Gold Glove award, which is decided by managers and and coaches. He is the first Cardinals catcher to win the award five times, and the first Cardinal since Jim Edmonds to take home five Gold Gloves in a row.

Molina is also considered a contender for the National League's Most Valuable Player, which will be announced Nov. 15.

Baseball bets are not usually something we cover much of here at St. Louis Public Radio (except when we make it to the World Series and make a chart of all the bets).

However, we thought we'd make an exception today to highlight something happening in the nation's capitol.

Hunter Pence hit a bizarre, two-run double, Matt Cain pitched his second clincher of October and the San Francisco Giants won their record-tying sixth elimination game of the postseason, beating the defending World Series champion St. Louis Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 of the NL championship series Monday night.
 
Marco Scutaro matched an LCS record with 14 hits in the series and Pablo Sandoval drove in a run for his fifth straight game. The Giants returned to the World Series two years after winning it all, getting the final out in a downpour.

Ryan Vogelsong struck out a career-best nine in another postseason gem and the San Francisco Giants forced a decisive Game 7 in the NL championship series with a 6-1 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Sunday night.
 
Marco Scutaro hit a two-run double and Buster Posey drove in his first run of the series with a groundout in the first inning as San Francisco struck early to support Vogelsong.
 
Matt Cain will start for the Giants against Kyle Lohse in Game 7 on Monday night. Lohse won their Game 3 matchup.

Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and the St. Louis Cardinals roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-3 rout Thursday night that gave them a 3-1 lead in the NL championship series.

Matt Holliday, Jon Jay and Yadier Molina had two RBIs apiece to lead a 12-hit outburst by a team that batted just .198 through the first three games of the series.

Matt Carpenter always tries to stay ready, keeping an assortment of gloves nearby. That's his job.

The St. Louis Cardinals' utilityman took on a new role in Game 3 of the NL championship series: game-changer.

Carpenter hit a two-run homer after subbing for Carlos Beltran and the Cardinals chased Matt Cain before a 3 1/2-hour rain delay in the seventh inning of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night for a 2-1 series lead.
