Although the Cardinals’ regular season record is only just a hair over 500, their last three wins against the Cubs were well timed and hopefully gave them the change in momentum that they needed. Currently, according to ESPN, the St. Louis Cardinals rank 1st overall for on base percentage, 2nd overall for batting average, 4th overall for number of runs, and 6th overall for slugging percentage. But with a 12-0 win against the Cubs on Saturday and 7-0 win on Sunday, the Cardinals are certainly picking up their number of runs home.
Up next is a 5-game series against 2nd ranked team in the NL West, the Los Angeles Dodgers. If the Cardinals hang on to this winning streak, the rankings and stats could change drastically for the better. Watch these upcoming games LIVE with your very own St. Louis Cardinals tickets or tune into the MLB Network to see Tuesday’s game, or ESPN on Wednesday. Either way, go Cardinals!

Want to learn a little more about the greatest team in baseball? I’ll give you a little background on the St. Louis Cardinals, how great they have been in the MLB over the past decades, and a roster of exactly who is on the St. Louis Cardinals team currently.
General Background Information on the St. Louis Cardinals
The St. Louis Cardinals are a major league baseball team based in St. Louis, Missouri, and are part of the Central Division of the National League. They joined the National League in 1892 and have since won 10 World Series championships, setting the record for the most wins of any team in the National League, and second to the New York Yankees (27 wins) for the most World Series titles of any team in Major League Baseball history.
Busch Stadium is the home of the Cardinals, the newest one built in 2006. The oldest Busch Stadium was formerly known as Sportsman’s Park until it was renamed after team owner Gussie Busch and the rest of Busch family of Anheuser-Busch in 1953. The second Busch Stadium followed the at-the-time trend of serving as a multi-purpose stadium in 1966 and witnessed some of the greatest Cardinals legends like hall-of-famers Stan Frank Musial, Bob Gibson, sportscaster Jack Buck, and one of the history’s greatest shortstops Ozzie Smith. The newest Busch Stadium which opened just four years ago has already been a good luck charm for our beloved St. Louis Cardinals, as they went on to win the 2006 World Series. With a total capacity of 46,861, the “New Busch Stadium” allows a great number of fans to see each game.
With every great baseball team comes an even greater rivalry, and that Chicago Cubs – St. Louis Cardinals rivalry has been in existence since the 1885 World Series, making it one of the longest running and most intense MLB rivalries out there. Chicago and St. Louis have a short distance of 300 miles between them, allowing for easy travels for the fans. The late 1990′s Mark McGwire/Sammy Sosa race to break the home run record added even more fuel to an already fired up rivalry. The Cardinals-Cubs will continue on as one of the greater rivalries in the MLB – each game more exciting than the last!
