So, the St. Louis Cardinals clawed their way into the "real" playoffs with a win on Friday against the Atlanta Braves. Now, they'll have to overcome a loss Sunday in Game One of the the team's best-of-five series against the National League East leading Washington Nationals.
The series resumes Monday at Busch Stadium, at 3:30 p.m., and will be televised on TBS. It could be the last home game of 2012 for the Redbirds, as the series shifts to Washington for at least one more game.
