With six games remaining until the All-Star break, the Cardinals say they need a breather.
The Cards have played under .500 baseball since early May, and lately still can’t find a way to complete a sweep.
Eight times this season, the Redbirds failed to win the final game of a series after winning the first two. Despite not being able to close out a series, the Cardinals are just a game in a half back of first place Cincinnati.
Manager Tony La Russa says the remaining games are crucial and he needs his players focused.
