GAME 102: Rock Bottom
The Cardinals lost this game 3-2 in ten innings (and this series) to the CHICAGO CUBS because they went 0-13 with runners in scoring position and took at-bats that would embarrass tee-ballers. Another quality start by Adam Wainwright wasted by somnambulistic offense.
The Cardinals are now trailing the Cincinnati Reds by 7.5 games, and are 3.2 back in the wild card race. Unless the commissioner changes the rules to include every team in baseball for a one-day playoff, these Cardinals will lose their crown in an ugly and disappointing way.
