ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - A St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher takes to social media to say his hotel room is haunted the night before he pitches a losing game. 
Carlos Martinez posted a video to Instagram on Wednesday, saying in Spanish that he saw an apparition in his room at the Pfister Hotel in Milwaukee that night.  

Martinez says Marcell Ozuna also saw a ghost in his room, so they went to Francisco Pena's room -- the video shows several Cardinals players in the background playing cards.

The hotel has a reputation for ghosts reported by Major League Baseball players from several teams.  

The next day, Martinez had a bad game, giving up five earned runs in four innings. The Brewers scored six more runs to win 11-3.
