Things turned ugly in a hurry at Busch Stadium on Wednesday night when the St. Louis Cardinals went from being three outs away from a win to suffering their toughest loss of the season thus far.
Up 4-3 in the ninth inning, St. Louis turned to Giovanny Gallegos.
Gallegos imploded, allowing three runs, two of which came on home runs.
The Los Angeles Angels ultimately stunned the crowd and walked away with a 6-4 comeback win.
The loss dropped the Cardinals to 11 games under .500.
After the game, fans let the Cardinals hear it again, and Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch took note of their frustration.
"Get on the phone, Mo!"
"Write about this!" #STLCards fans venting toward field and press box after Cardinals collapse to lose 6-4 against the Angels.
They're 10-21, and 5-10 at Busch Stadium

The Cardinals now own the worst record in the National League.
Fans were understandably frustrated after their tough loss on Wednesday.
But it’s reached a point where the loyal fans of St. Louis have gone to somewhat of a dark place.
Patience is thin, and fans are demanding change.
Not since 2007 have the Cardinals been more than 10 games below the .500 mark.
With the team 10 games back of first place, fans have simply had enough of the team’s poor play and are hoping that by some chance, things may change.
However, hopes are not high at the moment.
Nothing has changed since the Cardinals began their five-game losing skid, and fans have reached their breaking point.
Frederickson also noted that the Cards are now 5-10 at home this season.
In most cases, it’s rare for home fans to boo their own team.
But Cardinals fans’ frustrations are at an all-time high after Wednesday’s collapse.NEXT: The Cardinals Have Officially Reached A New Low
