The one-game playoff for the National League wildcard berth is at 4:07 p.m. Here's where you can watch it.
Technically, yes, the St. Louis Cardinals are in the playoffs after the Los Angeles Dodgers lost their shot at a wildcard berth on Tuesday. But it's do-or-die time for the Redbirds this afternoon.

Teenagers who lost a loved one this year participated in a camp organized by St. Anthony’s Medical Center Hospice.

The third baseman sent the St. Louis Cardinals to Game 7 of the World Series with his clutch performance, but he hasn't secured a spot on the National League's All-Star Game roster yet. Fans can still vote him in.
Why doesn’t the World Series MVP have a spot on the All-Star team yet? David Freese rescued the St. Louis Cardinals when they were one strike away from losing the World Series twice, and started this season with 13 home runs. Aside from baseball, he created his own baseball camp, suffered through an obnoxious interview at Six Flags St. Louis and made this 7-year old’s dream come true. Does that sound like an All-Star to you? Vote here or text N2 to 89269 to cast your ballot for Freese, who is competing against Bryce Harper (Washington Nationals), Michael Bourn (Atlanta Braves) and Aaron Hill (Arizona Diamondbacks). Freese was in the running against favorite Atlanta Braves' Chipper Jones, when Major League Baseball announced Jones would …

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Jack Buck's death. What is your favorite memory of the Hall of Fame St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster?
Seemingly everybody in St. Louis—baseball fan or not—has a great memory of Jack Buck, the legendary St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster. Whether it was a candid moment on the streets outside Busch Stadium or a famous play-by-play call heard around the country, Jack Buck touched so many lives that he is considered St. Louis royalty. Here's a tribute Bob Costas, a St. Louis-native, left for Jack Buck in the book "Remembering Jack Buck: Wonderful Stories Celebrating The Life Of A Broadcasting Legend": "Jack had a presence in the life of anyone who was around St. Louis for any period of time. There were highlights—Ozzie Smith's home run, Jack Clark's home run, and the reading of the poem when baseball returned after the September 11 tragedy. …

With the St. Louis Cardinals' home opener just days away, and with the rival Cubbies coming to town, now's the time for some trash talk — in two words.
You've heard the expression before, right? "I've got two words to say about that!" Well, this is the Patch version, coming ahead of the St. Louis Cardinals' home opener on Friday in which the Redbirds face off against the Chicago Cubs. Starting pitchers are expected to be Jeff Samardzija for the Cubs vs. Adam Wainwright for the Cards. After the Cardinals ruined the home opener for the Miami Marlins with a 4-1 victory in the team's new ballpark, and again ruined the home opener for the Milwaukee Brewers with an 11-5 victory, we have our heart set on a win for the Cards' opener at 2:15 p.m. Friday. The Cardinals get their first home game as they launch the season after their 11th World Series victory last year. The nationally syndicated "…
