The St. Louis Cardinals retire to the NL Central.

As the Milwaukee Brewers continue to slide since the Josh Hader trade, the Cards have gotten hot and added a small cushion to their division lead.

Their signature resilience was on full display yesterday as they rallied from a late deficit to beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4, completing a sweep and running their winning streak to seven games. .

In fact, St. Louis is on a historic pace this month.

They started August with a 15-3 record, their best August mark since 1944.

Cards on a roll

The second half always seems to be when St. Louis warms up and plays its best baseball.

Now they’ve parted ways with the Brewers a bit, and as they head to Wrigley Field for a five-game series against the Chicago Cubs, they have a chance to bury Milwaukee, who will head west for play the red-hot Los Angeles Dodgers.

Hot hitters Paul Goldschmidt, Nolan Arenado, Lars Nootbaar and Albert Pujols carried the cards this month.

Solid pitching from Adam Wainwright and Miles Mikolas also helped.

Their new acquisitions, starters Jose Quintana and Jordan Montgomery, proved to be strong pickups as they helped stabilize what was once an unbalanced rotation.

The Cardinals are now 69-51.

If the playoffs started today, the Cards would host the Philadelphia Phillies in a best-of-three Wild Card series.

St. Louis is on a roll now, and the next two weeks should be fun for Cardinals fans to watch.

We’ll see if the Cards can close the deal and claim their Premier League title since 2019.
