Former Cub Chris Coghlan Scores Amazing Run vs. Cardinals

Over the years, St. Louis Cardinals catcher Yadier Molina has gotten the better of a lot of baserunners, but on Tuesday, former Chicago Cubs outfielder Chris Coghlan beat Molina in the absolute coolest way possible.

During a game between the Toronto Blue Jays and St. Louis Cardinals, Coghlan rounded third base and headed for home on an extra-base hit by Toronto outfielder Kevin Pillar.

The play resulted in Coghlan being safe at the plate, and although it wasn't the winning run in the game, it did help Toronto to a 6-5 victory over the Cardinals.
