When the calendar turned to May, the Cardinals had just come off a brutal three-game weekend series in which the team won exactly zero games against the division-opponent Pirates. For fans of the Cardinals, it was The Pits. To add to the misery, the preceding Monday was an off day, which allowed everyone to stew in their frustration.
But lo, as people are fond of pointing out with an over-used Justin Timberlake meme, it’s gonna be May and May is now is. Birds are chirping, skies are sunny, and baseballs are soaring. Since being swept, the Cardinals have won five straight games, three via walkoff. All of the games they won were close, so the team could perhaps just as easily have lost five straight, but baseball is wonderful and weird that way. For now, the Birdos are back in first place in the Central.

Great win for the birds!— Kolten Wong (@KoltenWong) May 7, 2018
You know what feels even sweeter than a walk off? The morning after, seeing the photos of how happy your guys were for you and how humbled u are to make everyone proud. pic.twitter.com/DGCVPFqEGp— Dexter Fowler (@DexterFowler) May 7, 2018
