ST. LOUIS - Never count out the St. Louis Cardinals in October - especially after they lose a series opener. Carlos Beltran hit the last two of the Cardinals' four homers and St. Louis chased an ineffective Jordan Zimmermann early in a 12-4 rout of Washington on Monday that tied their NLDS at one game apiece "We know this offense has the potential to do this," Cardinals rookie manager Mike Matheny said. "It was nice to see this, and hopefully it becomes contagious and the guys just keep going.

ST. LOUIS - Matt Holliday broke out of a postseason slump with two RBIs on Thursday night, helping the St. Louis Cardinals take a 6-1 lead over the San Francisco Giants after six innings in Game 4 of the National League Championship Series. Holliday, hitting .167 with no RBIs in the NLCS entering the game, followed Jon Jay's single and Matt Carpenter's walk in the first inning with a single. Allen Craig, 0 for 9 through the first three games, added a sacrifice fly in the inning against Tim Lincecum, though Angel Pagan prevented more damage with a shoestring catch on Craig's sinking liner.

ST. LOUIS - One more win and another bunch of wild-card Cardinals get their chance to repeat. Adam Wainwright threw seven innings of four-hit ball and St. Louis roughed up Tim Lincecum and the San Francisco Giants in an 8-3 rout Thursday night that gave the Cardinals a 3-1 lead in the NLCS. The defending World Series champions can wrap up their second straight pennant as a wild card with a victory at home Friday night in Game 5. Lance Lynn faces Giants lefty Barry Zito, and a Cardinals win would set up a 2006 World Series rematch with Detroit.

SAN FRANCISCO - Marco Scutaro answered Matt Holliday's hard takeout with a big hit of his own to help the San Francisco Giants end their home slide. Scutaro hit a two-run single in San Francisco's four-run fourth inning to help the Giants get their first home win this postseason, 7-1, over the St. Louis Cardinals on Monday night. That tied the NL championship series at one game apiece. The game got off to a testy start when Holliday barreled into Scutaro at second base to break up a potential double play in the first inning.

JON JAY was having a miserable time at the plate until the 12th inning, when he hit a clutch RBI double that made he and his teammates forget all the ugly at-bats that preceded it. The go-ahead hit sparked a three-run rally for the visiting St. Louis Cardinals, who earned a split of their four-game series against the Los Angeles Dodgers with a 5-2 victory Sunday and regained undisputed possession of the second NL wild-card spot. "It was a long one and both teams fought hard," Jay said after the 4-hour, 25-minute marathon.

ST. LOUIS - Carlos Beltran limped to the trainer's room, taking the St. Louis Cardinals' biggest clutch October bat with him. Turns out they had the perfect substitute. Matt Carpenter hit a two-run homer after subbing for Beltran and the Cardinals chased Matt Cain before a 31/2-hour rain delay in the seventh inning of a 3-1 victory over the San Francisco Giants on Wednesday night for a 2-1 NL Championship Series lead.

ST. LOUIS - For three-and-a-half innings, the Phillies appeared to be on the verge of a win that would have forced you to change the adjectives you used to describe their road trip. At the start of the day, it was successful. But after roaring out to a three-run lead and raising the possibility of flying back to Philadelphia having won six of seven games against the Cardinals and the Braves, it was starting to look stunning. Then, things unraveled. The Cardinals exploded for four runs in the fourth inning, added another in the sixth, and held on for a 5-3 win that salvaged a split of the four-game series at Busch Stadium.

The chill in the air at Citizens Bank Park on Sunday night was not just from the first-pitch temperature of 50 degrees that continued to drop as the 31/2-hour game wore on. Uncomfortable Fahrenheit degrees are always erased by the calendar over the course of a baseball season. When April turns to May and May to June, a more pleasant climate will follow. Curing the other ills and chills that have crept into these parts will not be nearly as easy. The offense has gone cold and the reception from the crowds has become increasingly frigid, too. A better brand of baseball than the Phillies played during the first three weeks of the season is the only way to thaw the chilly fans.
