This achievement is pretty tricky as it requires you to not only win a ranked match but also against someone using the St. Louis Cardinals (of which no one wants to use anymore since Pujols was traded). From the home screen, select "Challenge the World" and "Quick Match". The game will attempt to find a match for you. If they use St. Louis, select a team and if you win, the achievement will unlock after the game results are reported.

If you want to boost this achievement, you'll have the best luck waiting until the early morning hours or any time where the players online are below 3000. Have the losing player search for a ranked match until they create one (it will say "Searching for match..." instead of "Looking for match..."). They will be the home team (the game is iffy about games that don't complete the bottom of the 9th, so it's better for the home team to lose). After the match is created, have player 2 search for it. Unless someone else finds it first, you'll match up rather quickly. Have the home team choose St. Louis and the away choose any team (probably best to use the Houston Astros, as you'll also get Upset Alert). Have each player bunt (allowing player 2 to score off the first bunt) and throw them out at first (it's easier if you make the runner try to run to second). This will allow you to complete a game in ~10 minutes and you'll get the achievement after the game results are reported. If you haven't won a game online yet, you'll also get the "Count It" achievement (as well as the "Upset Alert" if you used the Houston Astros). It's best to get this while going for the Spice of Life, Count It and Upset Alert achievements.
