Cardinals look for win over Pirates ahead of playoffs

The visiting St. Louis Cardinals are making no secret of the fact that playoff preparation is their top priority in their final regular-season series against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

That doesn't mean the Cardinals have stopped being competitive before they start a best-of-three playoff series against the visiting Philadelphia Phillies on Friday.

St. Louis (93-68), which has wrapped up the National League Central title, and Pittsburgh (61-100) head into their regular-season finale Wednesday with the series up for grabs.
