St. Louis Cardinals clinch NL Wild Card

Chris Carpenter threw a two hitter as the Cardinals beat the Astros 8-0. A few hours later, rookie closer Craig Kimbrel blew a save for the Atlanta Braves and Phillie won in extra innings. The Braves collapsed after an 8 1/2 game lead for the wild card spot on Aug 25, but they kept losing and the Cardinals squeaked in on the last few days of the season to clinch. St. Louis will travel to Philadelphia and the winner will play either Arizona or Milwaukee.
