The last road trip summed up the Cardinals season…fighting until the end. Despite having nothing to play for, the Cards completed a sweep of the Pittsburgh Pirates and finish the season with a five game winning streak, with a 6-5 win on Sunday.
Skip Schumaker, 5 for 5 with 2 RBI. Tony LaRussa stays mum on his future. Big questions about whether or not World Series MVP David Eckstein will be around next year. Cards finish the season 78-84.
