The St. Louis Cardinals are currently giving the Atlanta Braves one of the worst beatdowns we’ve ever seen in an MLB playoff game.
St. Louis scored 10 runs in the first inning and hasn’t let up, leading 13-1 as we head into the bottom of the fifth inning in Game 5 of the National League Division Series.
The home plate umpire is just adding insult to injury.
The strike three call for the home plate umpire is a bit excessive and, unsurprisingly, has gone viral on social media.

Strike three calls don’t get much more emphatic than that.
St. Louis and Atlanta are currently 4.5 innings into their decisive Game 5.
You can watch the finish on TBS.
