The Cardinals marathon season comes down to a 19 game sprint to the end of the regular season. After stumbling to a 2-5 road trip through Pittsburgh and Cincinnati, the Cards flipped the script with a weekend sweep against the Pirates.

The Redbirds will play 16 of their final 19 games at Busch Stadium. The schedule looks favorable for the Cards, as they wrap up with 16 games against opponents with under .500 records. However, the Cards will play 16 games in a row, with their final off day of the season coming on September 26th. Meanwhile, the Pirates and Reds will play each other 6 times during that stretch. Here’s how the Cards will close out the 2013 regular season:

Sept 10-12     vs Brewers

Sept. 13-15   vs Mariners

Sept. 16-19     at Rockies

Sept. 20-22    at Brewers

Sept. 23-25    vs Nationals

Sept. 27-29    vs Cubs
