ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - The first Facebook broadcast of the St. Louis Cardinals game wasn't well received, according to our social media followers – and another one is happening again on Wednesday. The final game of the Cardinals' three-game series in Milwaukee on Wednesday can be heard on KMOX (as always) at 12:10 a.m., but the only place to watch the game will be on Facebook. 

It's part of this year's new partnership between MLB and Facebook. The Cardinals already had one game on Facebook on April 12, it was a 3-2 loss at Busch Stadium.

That first game had about 4.4 million total views globally on Facebook – peaking at 78,000 at one time – and after the game we asked our followers what they though: 

Feel free to go through as many of the 200-plus comments yourself, but the 148 "angry faces" compared to 12 "loves" just about sums it up. 

Anyone with a Facebook account will be able to watch the game for free. You will be able to watch Wednesday's game, at this link.
