Chris Coghlan describes one of the wildest runs ever scored in Major League Baseball, his headfirst flight over Yadier Molina, followed by a forward tumble.

The Cardinals' continued awful defense and a wild, headfirst dive by Chris Coghlan cost them a 6-5 loss in 11 innings Tuesday night at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals made four errors, the most costly an Aledmys Diaz bad throw in the 11th.

The Cardinals have a way of finding minor-league journeymen who turn into major-league heroes, at least for stretches of a season. Jose Martinez is this year's version. He came off the bench to blast a two-run home run to tie Tuesday night's game with Toronto in the seventh inning. Martinez, batting .348 when he starts, is now 4-for-5 with two doubles and a home run as a pinch hitter.

Chris Coghlan proved there can be a fine line between a great slide and a potentially dangerous one. Stephen Piscotty's throw beat Coghlan by several steps, but catcher Yadier Molina was hunched over collecting the ball. Coghlan soared over him before tucking, flipping as Molina stood up and landing on the plate with his right hand, shoulder and head. That scored the go-ahead run for the Blue Jays in the seventh inning. It came on a Kevin Pillar triple.

The struggling Blue Jays got some rare good news tonight: a third straight borderline dominant start from Marco Estrada. He struck out nine Cardinals and held them to two runs on six hits over six innings.

Mark Saxon ESPN Staff Writer 

The last-place Blue Jays are 29th in the majors in runs scored and manager John Gibbons will try just about anything to get his listless offense going. Tuesday night in St. Louis, he is starting catcher Russell Martin at third base. Martin hasn't started a game at third since 2008 when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers. "He looks great at the plate right now. Our big thing is scoring runs, you know? There's no doubt in my mind he can do it. You look at that lineup, he's probably the best athlete on that field. We'll give it a go. If it works, we may do it again."
