Sweeping the Mets, Padres, Brewers, and Cubs

When you saw this stretch of games on the calendar in July, it was pretty cringeworthy filled with the knowledge it might get ugly. In the end, it wasn’t the Cardinals this stretch of games was ugly for as it turned out.

The Cardinals handled the Mets in New York 7-0, 7-6, and 11-4. They stunned the San Diego Padres at Busch 8-2, 3-3, and 8-7. They swept a four-game series from the Brewers in Milwaukee 5-2, 2-1, 10-2, and 8-5. They swept a doubleheader and a four-game set from the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field 8-5, 12-4, 8-5, and 4-2.

An improbable run from the Cardinals came with an improbable collapse from the Mets and Padres, a bad series from the NL Central winning Brewers and. a continued poor stretch from the Chicago Cubs.
