MLB: Milwaukee Brewers at St. Louis Cardinals Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

The Cardinals won their 17th consecutive game last night and clinched a postseason berth. St. Louis will play in the National League Wild Card Game on Wednesday, October 5; as things stand now, they will take on the Dodgers at Dodger Stadium. The Dodgers are two games back of the Giants for the NL West lead with five days left to go in the 2021 regular-season campaign.

Obviously, last night’s win was exciting for so many reasons. Not only did the Cardinals extend their franchise-best win streak to 17, but Adam Wainwright picked up his 17th win of the season and was a key factor all year long to push the Cardinals to their third straight Postseason appearance. New faces in the Busch Stadium home clubhouse this year — Nolan Arenado, Lars Nootbaar, T.J. McFarland, and others — sure know how to celebrate.

The Cardinals still have five regular season games remaining, with the next contest set for Wednesday evening with the Brewers. Miles Mikolas will make the start, opposite of Adrian Houser, with the first pitch set for 6:45 PM Central.

Have a great day! The Cardinals are in!!
