Cardinals close in on Brewers in wild-card race

Even after the St. Louis Cardinals' eight-game winning streak ended Thursday night, there was a sense among the players that the loss wouldn't blunt their momentum.

That sense was proved correct Friday night when they got six shutout innings from Jack Flaherty in a 5-2 win over the injury-riddled Milwaukee Brewers that pulled them within a half-game of Milwaukee for the National League's second wild-card spot.

The Cardinals can overtake the Brewers on Saturday night at Busch Stadium with a victory in the second game of the teams' weekend series.
