There may be a sleeper cell Cubs fan working the fireworks at Busch Stadium.
Kris Bryant homered in the second inning of the Cubs-Cardinals game on Monday and surprisingly fireworks went off in St. Louis. Bryant made it 5-0 and he was almost at second base when the bang of a set of fireworks was audible on the CSN broadcast.
"And somebody set off some fireworks," play-by-play announcer Len Kasper said.
Jim Deshaies also chimed in on the broadcast with a crack about a Cubs spy.
"There's a mole." Deshaies said. "There's a Cubs spy in the fireworks department here."
A Cubs win eliminates the Cardinals from contention in the NL Central so this is just insult to injury.
