The St. Louis Cardinals continued their dominance in the National League as they beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 of their NLDS series to advance to the 2013 NLCS against the Los Angeles Dodgers.

The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-1 in Game 5 of their NLDS series on Wednesday to advance to the 2013 NLCS.

Adam Wainwright, arguably the leader of the Cardinals pitching staff after he assumed the role from good friend Chris Carpenter, pitched a complete game to lead St. Louis to victory. 

Wainwright's complete game is the first for the Cardinals since Carpenter pulled it off in Game 5 of the NLDS against the Philadelphia Phillies two years ago, per Jeff Gordon of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

 Wainwright had nine strikeouts and allowed just one run on three hits in seven innings of work in Game 1, which St. Louis won handily, 9-1.  

After six days of rest, he allowed the same number of runs on eight hits and six strikeouts. 

He said it was one of the highlights of his MLB career

"I got to put it up right there with the most fun and one of the greatest moments of my career so far. To pitch a game like that, one of the highlights of my baseball life so far, no doubt." 

Wainwright struck out Pirates third baseman Pedro Alvarez to conclude matters in the bottom of the ninth.

Alvarez said he and his teammates will look to build on their 2013 season, a successful one considering they finished 94-68 and made the postseason for the first time since 1992. 

"Our goal has always been to be the last team celebrating on the mound at the end of the year. That was cut short for us this year. All we can do now is continue to work hard and work as a unit, as a team, and keep growing together." 

The Cardinals drew first blood with third baseman David Freese's two-run shot in the bottom of the second inning. Freese now ranks third in St. Louis franchise history with seven postseason home runs. 

Center fielder Jon Jay then added a two-out single in the bottom of the sixth, scoring Matt Holliday. Rookie first baseman Matt Adams delivered the crushing blow with a two-run home run to right field in the eighth off Pirates reliever Mark Melancon.

Pete Kozma then singled to shallow left to conclude a three-run eighth. Wainwright did the rest by finishing off the Pirates on the mound.

The Cardinals will now move on and face the Los Angeles Dodgers in the 2013 NLCS. Game 1 kicks off on Oct. 11 at Busch Stadium in St. Louis.

St Louis Cardinals: Kolten Wong’s Rookie of the Year chances

Sep 11 2014 4:49pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

There is no doubting Kolten Wong’s emergence as the Cardinals’ everyday second baseman. Despite getting sent back to AAA in April and dealing with an injury in June, he has been the obvious choice over Mark Ellis for the Cardinals to start every day. The Cardinals will rely on his bat to spark the bottom of the lineup through the playoff race. However, with his improved place since coming off the DL in July, he has planted him ...

Cardinals fan irate over ‘pornographic’ Hardee’s commerical airing during ball games

A middle-aged St. Louis Cardinals fan wrote a letter to the editor at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch to bemoan the fact that a decent, God-fearing and church-going  fan can’t tune into a broadcast of a baseball game without being bombarded by “pornographic” commercials featuring scantily clad women chowing down on meaty hamburgers.
