St. Louis' homestand continues Monday when San Francisco comes to town.

The St. Louis Cardinals enter Monday winners of five of their last six games, which includes a weekend sweep of the Milwaukee Brewers. In the process, they've made up some ground in the NL Central -- and in the Wildcard -- though they would be out of the playoffs were they to start Monday.
