Cards solve Hader but see Wild Card lead cut
While they foiled the Brewers' bullpen blueprint, the Cardinals couldn't master their own -- and it cost them all the cushion they once enjoyed in the National League Wild Card race. A three-game series featuring the two clubs currently in Wild Card position opened with the Brewers stealing a 6-4 win at Busch Stadium on Monday night. The loss ensures the Brewers will depart St. Louis later this week still holding the top Wild Card spot.

Gomber set for first start vs. Brewers
Second baseman Kolten Wong is expected back in the lineup Tuesday when the Cardinals continue their three-game series against the Brewers with a 7:15 p.m. CT game from Busch Stadium. On the mound, it'll be a matchup of southpaws, as Austin Gomber (6-1, 3.63 ERA) will face Gio Gonzalez (9-11, 4.28 ERA) in his first career start against the Brewers. Gomber will be pitching on six days' rest.

Fasten your seatbelt: We could get a 4-way tie
We've still got some very realistic tiebreaker possibilities in play in this last week of the regular season, and foremost among them is that the Brewers, Cardinals, Dodgers and Rockies could all end up with the same record -- leaving both the NL West and the two NL Wild Card spots up in the air after Sunday's final out.

Sweep sets up Cards for huge final-week push
An all-important final week of the season looms for St. Louis, with six games against the Brewers and Cubs that will determine if the Cardinals can push their way into the postseason for the first time since 2015. They'll enter it rolling, winners of six of seven after completing a weekend sweep of the Giants on Sunday with a 9-2 victory at Busch Stadium. Behind a barrage of offense and a dominant Miles Mikolas, St. Louis kept pace with Milwaukee and Chicago, which both won, and maintained its 1 1//2-game lead over Colorado for the second National League Wild Card spot.

Who is Cardinals' all-time single-season ace?

Cardinals being careful with Hicks' usage
There is little precedent for how the Cardinals should handle rookie reliever Jordan Hicks, given his age, experience, and stuff. Manager Mike Shildt has been careful not to call on Hicks recklessly this month, though he hasn't hesitated to deploy him in tie games or with a lead due to what he called the Cards' "highly competitive state."

Cards' WC hopes helped by O'Neill's HR in 10th
Tyler O'Neill hit a walk-off homer in the 10th inning to lift the Cardinals past the Giants, 5-4, on Saturday afternoon and strengthen their Wild Card hopes. Yadier Molina crushed a game-tying two-run homer in the seventh to help rally the Cardinals, who won despite committing a season-high four errors. Rookie catcher Aramis Garcia went 4-for-4 with two RBIs for the Giants, who have lost three in a row.

Waino still effective in possible final Busch start
What the distant future holds for Adam Wainwright, neither he nor the Cardinals will say. Fact is, neither he nor the Cardinals know. When it comes to Wainwright, all of the larger questions remain uncertain: whether the 37-year-old will return next season, whether he'll even play at all, whether Saturday marked his final start in a Cardinals uniform at Busch Stadium.

Error helps Brewers shave magic number to 3
An Eric Thames triple that skipped past Cardinals right fielder Jose Martinez in the eighth inning, followed by an errant pickoff by Cards reliever Bud Norris gave the Brewers the go-ahead run they needed to overcome Josh Hader's rough night in a 6-4 win at Busch Stadium.

The Astros moved one step closer to their second straight American League West title, riding back-to-back homers from Brian McCann and Josh Reddick and a gritty outing from Dallas Keuchel to a victory over the Blue Jays.
