The surging Cardinals finally caught up with the slumping Braves. With one more day left in the season, the two teams are both 89-72. Atlanta lost 7-1 to the top seeded Phillies. They've lost 7 of their last 10 games and will have to beat Phillie in order to have a chance for the wild card spot. St. Louis' wild card bid looks much stronger since they have won 7 of their last 10 and finish their season in Houston.
