Mark Whiten — Sept. 7, 1993
Whiten's performance came in game two of a doubleheader, a 15-2 Cardinals win over the Cincinnati Reds. But Whiten was a big reason why St. Louis lost the opener, misplaying a Reggie Sanders ninth-inning line drive in a 14-13 game. Whiten matched Jim Bottomley for the most RBI in one game — 12.
