St. Louis was grossed out by nasty smell near Busch Stadium last night

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - If you happened to be at Wednesday night's St. Louis Cardinals game, or were anywhere near the ballpark in downtown, you must have smelled what everyone was talking about. 

There was a rancid smell that many people around Busch Stadium were tweeting and posting on Facebook about. Here's what some said: 

Portions of downtown #STL smell like a combination of vomit and a Cargill processing plant right now. Any idea what this is??

Purina's headquarters are close by, but they don't make any dog food there.

Is it just me or does Busch Stadium literally smell like a steaming pile of dog food tonight #stlcards

Was there some kind of spill down the street at Purina?? The smell of wet dog food is hanging in Busch Stadium right now...

What WAS that smell downtown last night? Some people are saying Busch Stadium stunk, but it was all over downtown. It was gross. https://t.co/ZKuYL0Rvmw

It wasn't like any kind of fart we've smelled before.

Why does all of Busch stadium smell like straight butthole? @Cardinals

There was at least one person connecting the smell to the Cardinals not making a big trade at the deadline.

It’s smell like a front office dumpster fire at Busch Stadium tonight for the @Cardinals game. Good thing @espn is here for it

A mixture of Cubs fans and horrible Cardinal baseball.

A few complaints were posted on Facebook too. One pointed out that a lot of Cubs fans were in town. Hmmm.
