Students, alumni, faculty and staff of the University of Missouri–St. Louis were treated to ideal weather conditions and plenty of runs Friday as the St. Louis Cardinals blasted the Milwaukee Brewers 10-0 Friday on the annual UMSL Night at the Ballpark at Busch Stadium in downtown St. Louis.

Campus photographer August Jennewein was on hand to capture the fun before the game through the last Cardinals run.
