The Cardinals are playing some of their best baseball in decades. Paul Goldschmidt hit two home runs as St. Louis swept the Brewers with a 8-5 win yesterday in Milwaukee. The Cards have won 12 straight, their longest winning streak since 1982. Adam Wainwright became the second Cardinals pitcher to reach two-thousand career strikeouts. The Redbirds hold a comfortable lead for the second NL Wild Card spot.
