It was the first time the Cardinals sweep a four game road series since 2004, but despite the 8-4 win on Sunday, the Cardinals are exactly in the same spot they were after Thursday’s win…three games behind first place Milwaukee.
While the Cardinals beat up on the Marlins, the Brewers were beating up on Houston. Milwaukee has won 11 of their last 12 as the two teams prepare for another show down starting on Tuesday at Busch Stadium.
This weekend, Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday and Lance Berkman tore up Florida pitching, hitting a combined.438 (21 for 48) in the series with five home runs and 13 RBIs. It was the final game in the Marlins’ current home for the Cardinals, and their record in the stadium is 45-27, best in the NL.
