The St. Louis Cardinals won the first-ever National League Wild Card Game, defeating the Atlanta Braves, 6-3, at Turner Field. 3B Chipper Jones, playing the last game of his career, committed a costly error for Atlanta in the 4th inning, throwing a potential double play grounder into right field, allowing St. Louis to score its first three runs that inning.

The most controversial play took place in the 8th inning, however, when SS Andrelton Simmons lifted a fly ball to shallow left that dropped between LF Matt Holliday and SS Peter Kozma. But umpire Sam Holbrook called the infield fly rule, and Simmons was out. A 19-minute delay ensued as fans pelted the field with debris; Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez filed a protest, which was immediately dismissed by Major League Baseball Vice-President Joe Torre, allowing the game to resume. Jason Motte then recorded the final four outs of the game.
