Cardinals staying in race against also-ran Rockies

The St. Louis Cardinals are fighting for a postseason slot as either a wild card or the National League Central Division champions, and a change in priorities for the Colorado Rockies might give them a boost.

While St. Louis puts its best team on the field every game, the Rockies are taking a long look beyond 2019.

The Cardinals took sole possession of first place with Friday's 8-3 win over Colorado and the Chicago Cubs' 9-3 loss to the Washington Nationals. They will continue their surge for their first postseason appearance since 2015, resuming the four-game series against the visiting Rockies in a matchup of teams headed in different directions.
