The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies' on their home turf Friday night — by a large margin. If that isn't rude enough, the Cards might've brought an uninvited guest with them.

While that might've been the most exciting part of the game, Twitter users stoked the fires of speculation by claiming it was the reappearance of "Rally Squirrel."
The famous — or infamous — Rally Squirrel first appeared during the October 5, 2011 Cards-Phillies playoffs matchup. The Cards won that game and went on to win the World Series, sending the Cards fanbase into a squirrel-crazed frenzy.
Word of advice to the Phillies: if you want to put away the Cards, either at home or on the road, you might want to rally around some rodent repellent.
