MLB: Los Angeles Dodgers at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

Happy Thursday!

The Cardinals, winners of 11 straight games, are 82-69 and now hold a 4 12 game lead for the second National League Wild Card. Miles Mikolas turned in seven strong innings, and the offense put on a show: 10 runs on 15 hits, including five doubles and home runs from Tyler O’Neill and Paul Goldschmidt.

The Reds were rained out on Wednesday, and the Padres fell to the Giants. So, it’s the Dodgers holding the first Wild Card spot, with the Cardinals in the second spot. Both the Reds and Phillies are 4 12 games back. The Padres are six games behind, and the Mets have dropped to 9 12 back.

St. Louis has a chance to complete a four-game sweep in Milwaukee, behind Adam Wainwright this afternoon. It’ll be Waino up against Adrian Houser around 1:20 PM at American Family Field.

Have a great day!
