The St. Louis Blues got some Major League support from their fellow Gateway City athletes when a bunch of St. Louis Cardinals showed up to Game 6 of the Western Conference First Round. 

Second baseman Kolten Wong and first baseman Jose Martinez were in the crowd sporting Blues jerseys, and pitcher Adam Wainwright and catcher Yadier Molina took the game in from a box at Enterprise Center. 

Wainwright and Molinaeven jumped on the microphone to help hype up the crowd which watched the Blues win the series against the Winnipeg Jets and move onto the second round.

The Blues will play the winner of the series between the Dallas Stars and Nashville Predators, which Dallas leads 3-2. 

The Cardinals beat the New York Mets 10-2 at Busch Stadium earlier in the day before the group of ballplayers headed over to watch the Blues.
