Well the Cardinals lost game 5 to put the Red Sox up 3-2 in the series. The Cards just plain got beat in game 5 without any of the weirdness or errors that happened in the previous games.
Game 6 is tonight and if the Cards loose that’s it for this season. Even if the Cards win tonight it will be very difficult to win two games in a row in Boston. The outlook for the Cards isn’t very good right now.
