The St. Louis Cardinals played some of the most exciting, tension-filled playoff baseball of all-time in 2011 that included three win-or-go-home victories and resulted in a championship.
The St. Louis Cardinals beat the Atlanta Braves in the first ever Wild Card game Friday and are headed to the NLDS to face the Washington Nationals. As significant at that news is, the outcome of the game was unfortunately not the big story of the night.
The Brewers were excited. The largest off-season acquisition for the team, Zack Greinke, was set to take the mound for the first time in 2011.
