Cardinals radio laughs at holding the runner

Game 4's peculiar walkoff pickoff ending produced a not-so-great moment for Fox when their cameras were too busy scanning Busch Stadium for attractive, worried Cardinals fans to catch the play.  It also produced an incredible moment of irony in the Cardinals radio booth.  Here from MLB.com are the TV and radio calls from last night's final out.  

Joe Buck does a great job calling the play, the Red Sox radio call is ok, but the 2 minute mark is where things get really entertaining.  On KMOX, Cardinals announcer Mike Shannon is openly laughing at the Red Sox for holding Kolten Wong on first base and called it silly because that's not The Cardinal WayTM or something.

A few milliseconds later, Wong was picked off first and Shannon had to pick the egg off his face.  Here's the full audio of the call from KMOX.
