Cardinals Post Game after 8-6 Loss to Cubs, But Magic Number drops to One

Even though the Cardinals lost to the Cubs 8-6 on Saturday night at Busch Stadium, their magic number to clinch the National League Central Division title is down to just one. The Colorado Rockies beat the Milwaukee Brewers 3-2 in ten innings to move the number to one.

With one game remaining in the regular season, the Cardinals will turn to their ace pitcher, Jack Flaherty to pitch them into a division crown. A Cardinals win or a Brewers loss on Sunday will clinch the division title for St. Louis.

Martin also talked with Cards pitcher Adam Wainwright, who suffered the loss in the game (14-10). Wainwright allowed a career high four home runs to the Cubs in the game. Wainwright had never allowed four homers in one single game in his long career.
