AMARILLO, TX - The Springfield Cardinals (11-2) scored six runs in the top of the 12th inning and got seven innings of one-run ball from four relievers in a 9-4 victory over the Amarillo Sod Poodles (4-9) on Friday night at Hodgetown. With the win the Cards tied the series at two games apiece.

Springfield is now 2-0 in extra-inning games this season.

The Cardinals' six-run 12th inning matched their biggest inning of the season.

Noah Mendlinger's 12th-inning bases-clearing double extended his hitting streak to eight games.

The Cardinals' bullpen was not only lights out, but clutch. Matt Svanson struck out Tim Tawa to end the 10th inning with the winning run on second base, and Andre Granillo got Lyle Lin looking with the bases loaded in the 11th inning to send the game to the 12th.

Springfield CF Bryan Torres came out of the ballgame in the 6th inning after appearing to injure himself on a diving catch in the 5th.
