For their last 1,131 regular-season games, the Cardinals have taken the field with postseason aspirations still alive. That steak will end on Friday.
It’s desperation time for the Brewers, who can scarcely afford any losses as they face the recently eliminated Cardinals for the final series of the regular season at Busch Stadium.
After battling through debilitating shoulder pain for the last several weeks, Matt Carpenter will be shut down for the final series of the Cardinals’ season.
The end came unceremoniously for Lance Lynn, with no staged sendoff or opportunity for the fans packing Busch Stadium to collectively acknowledge his contributions from the past seven seasons. He would have traded all that for a win, which, in losing to the Cubs, 2-1, the Cardinals couldn’t pull off either.

He was diagnosed with a left side contusion, but the Cardinals are optimistic that their two-hole hitter will be […]
The Cardinals denied the Cubs a chance to party on Tuesday. Can St. Louis do it again on Wednesday?
