The St. Louis Cardinals dropped a heartbreaker to the Chicago Cubs on Friday.
The two teams face off in Game Three tied at a game a piece.
If the Cardinals want to keep Pujols on the back burner and the season in focus, they cannot lose the month of August.
If they are not winning, there is a greater possibility of injuries or other factors off the field at play. This team is far too good to lose the month of June.
What more did the Cardinals salvage in Wrigley? It was much more than just avoiding the embarrassing sweep.
