O’Neill’s late homer rallies Cards past bickering Padres 3-2

With the San Diego Padres squabbling amongst themselves, the St. Louis Cardinals rallied to solidify their postseason position. Tyler O’Neill hit a go-ahead, two-run homer in the eighth inning and the Cardinals came back to beat the Padres 3-2 Saturday night after San Diego stars Manny Machado and Fernando Tatis Jr. had a dugout dustup. The Cardinals pulled two games ahead of Cincinnati for the second and final NL wild card, with San Diego and Philadelphia 2 1/2 games behind.
