Going into Game 4 tonight feels like a far cry from last week when the St. Louis Cardinals pushed the Atlanta Braves out in a historic 13-1 win.
And now, after taking Game 5 of the NLDS in a historic 10-run first inning, the Cardinals find themselves one series away from the World Series. Yes, the World Series.
13-1? Did that really just happen?
While it took three years for the St. Louis Cardinals to return to the postseason, it took them eight years to quite possibly repeat the past.
The St. Louis Cardinals and Atlanta Braves will face off the first time since May — a time when the postseason looked and felt like a mere figment of everyone’s imagination.
It all came down to game 162 with the National League Central on the line.
I’m a little late, considering the National League Wild Card is taking place this evening, but in true Chelsea fashion — better than never, right?
