Last week, pitchers Joe Kelly and Shelby Miller were teammates. But shortly after the St. Louis Cardinals dealt Kelly to Boston on the day of Major League Baseball's non-waive trade deadline, the two pitched against each other at Busch Stadium.

Since both pitchers would have to bat in the inter-league matchup in a National League stadium, the two close friends, who were each other's best man in their recent weddings, decided to make a wager.

"He said if he gets a hit off me, I owe him $100," Miller told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch before the game.

Kelly ended up walking Miller on four pitches when they first squared off. But walks weren't part of the bet. When Kelly had his first at-bat of the game in the third inning, he reached first base on an infield hit.
