Major League Baseball Productions embedded camera crews with both teams throughout the three-game series, providing a unique perspective on all the action between the lines as the Cardinals tried to close the gap between themselves and the National League Central Division leading Reds, while maintaining their grasp on one of the two NL Wild Card spots.
In addition to exclusive commentary from star players on both sides, the episode features compelling in-game audio throughout the series, highlighted by Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips, who wore a wireless microphone during Saturday’s game, in which he went 3 for 5 with a home run and 2 RBI in the Reds’ 8-2 win. The episode also features in-depth interviews with managers Dusty Baker and Mike Matheny, as well as Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright and Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo. Off the field, a camera crew walked to the ballpark with rookie of the year candidate Todd Frazier, while another crew tagged along for a cab ride with Cardinals center fielder Jon Jay.
