CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

While our Cincinnati Reds are 5-1 for the first time since 2011, the St. Louis Cardinals are 3-3 and have botched a ticket promotion using a photo of Great American Ball Park.

The Cardinals were trying to give away tickets to some loyal fans, however they were using a photo of full of Reds fans.

According to FOX Sports, the Cardinals Instagram account posted a picture Saturday morning of a baseball stadium along with a message asking fans to share their game pictures from Opening Week for a chance to win some free tickets.

Except the photo wasn't of Busch Stadium and there were no Cardinals fans.

If you look closely, you can see fans wearing a Joe Morgan jersey, a Billy Hamilton jersey and even a Joey Votto t-shirt.

I spy with my little eye, do not see any Cardinals gear.

You can also spot a Jeff Wyler Honda advertisement.

We get it, both teams have red and white. Both of the our fields have green grass, but the photo they posted is definitely of Great American Ballpark.

FOX Sports, who first spotted the snafu, said the image stayed on the team's page for a few hours before it was taken down.

Nice try, St. Louis.
