St. Louis Cardinals fans Katie, Cori, Ashley and Jill took Taylor Swift’s “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” and twisted it into a song about the Cards going to the World Series, calling it, “Cardinals are Going, Going, Going to the World Series” The only thing more annoying in baseball right now is probably the cruddy infield fly call that helped the Cardinals advance to the NLDS.

The St. Louis Cardinals are carrying 10 pitchers, one more than the Braves, on their 25-man roster for their NL wild-card game against Atlanta. Kyle Lohse is starting Friday.

Kyle Lohse comes through for Cardinals, himself when it matters most

Some St. Louis Cardinals fans questioned the decision to go with starter Kyle Lohse in Friday night's wild 6-3 victory over the Atlanta Braves in MLB's inaugural Wild Card Game, especially with ace Adam Wainwright available to pitch. But with a 16-3 record and a 2.86 ERA on the season, Lohse has been the Cardinals most consistent starter all season long and manager Mike...

Cardinals overcome underdog role again

ATLANTA The St. Louis Cardinals have no problem being the underdog. In fact, they love it.

And the results looked similar to last year...

Cardinals' Garcia set for start in his home comfort zone

St. Louis Cardinals left-hander Jaime Garcia, who suffered an 8-1 setback at Washington on Aug. 30, will start Game 2 of the National League Division Series against the Nationals on Monday.

Gonzalez, Wainwright set to duel in Game 1

ST. LOUIS - Adam Wainwright had his best start in nearly two months when he faced the Washington Nationals in his final regular season start. He's hoping for similar success Sunday.

Disputed call takes spotlight in Cardinals' win

Worried that more debris could fly out of the stands, St. Louis players scrambled off the field and launched a wild-card celebration in the safety of their clubhouse.

Wainwright vs. Gonzalez in Game 1

Adam Wainwright was a glorified spectator last fall, cheering on the St. Louis Cardinals from the bench as they rose from wild card to World Series champions. It's a lot more fun being part of the action. Every fan in in long-suffering Washington, D.C., anticipating the first postseason appearance for the nation's capital since 1933, has to feel that way, too. Wainwright...

Cardinals recap: St. Louis Cardinals 6 Atlanta Braves 3

The St. Louis Cardinals were fortunate enough to qualify for the playoffs this season thanks to Bud Selig's new "Wild Card" format.  After beating the Braves 6-3 on the road in front of some raucous fans at Turner Field in Atlanta, it is obvious that the new system did not take long to turn "wild."

Cruddy: Mike Matheny was schooled by Davey Johnson in the eighth inning

Johnson clearly has the edge in experience and may have...

Cardinals beat Braves in disputed playoff

ATLANTA (AP) -- David Freese and the St. Louis Cardinals rediscovered their postseason touch. Chipper Jones and the Braves kept throwing the ball away.
