10 best moments from St. Louis Cardinals’ historic winning streak
There have been some amazing moments for the St. Louis Cardinals in their 17-game winning streak.
St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster Dan McLaughlin refers to it as the Cardinals Run In 21. The organization will tell you they are Not Done Yet. That’s a lot of catchphrases for the amazing 17-game winning streak they found themselves in.
Their run has caught the attention of an adoring fanbase that has been primed for months to see this type of run from this team.
When the Cardinals acquired Nolan Arenado, it became clear the organization was serious about winning. Things happen, unfortunately, and the team struggled with injuries and a string of bad luck on the diamond.
Somehow, the Cardinals managed to linger in the mix of things the entire time.
Things weren’t going so well at the end of August and early September, losing two Sunday games in a row to walk-off grand slam home runs. September started slow, but then came the series with the Cincinnati Reds that seem to start it all on Sept. 10. They took two out of three from the team, whom they battled fiercely most of the season.
Since then, the team has swept the New York Mets, San Diego Padres, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Chicago Cubs. Earlier this season, if you saw these games on the schedule, it was a cause for concern. But not with this bunch.
The Cardinals have seemingly kicked it into another gear. Each player has stepped up in their own way to contribute to the team as a whole to win. No matter what. If one player is down, the other players lift them up.
This has become the team we have envisioned since acquiring Nolan Arenado. And it has been so fun to see. I just hope this unbelievable ride continues well into October.
Let’s discuss some of our favorite moments from this streak.
