STLtoday - Frustrated Redbirds suffer series sweep

STLtoday - Frustrated Redbirds suffer series sweep: "For several weeks, the Cardinals have had the appearance of a contender, loitering in the wild-card chase mostly because the other clubs haven't played well enough to shoo them away.

It took the lowly Pittsburgh Pirates to impose reality."

... Frustration for the Cardinals seemed to be the order of yesterday's game, and the team is recognizing it, dealing with it, and hopefully, will get beyond it. There are a couple weeks remaining and they are yet in the NL Wild Card race, regardless of how tough the odds are against them.
