Series breakdown: Last year’s World Series champions have been trying to get into contention after a horrible start, but it may be too late. After winning four in a row this week, the Cardinals lost two straight to the Pirates before heading to the District last night. The problem, as it has been all season, is a makeshift rotation. St. Louis starters have posted a 5.49 ERA this year, highest in the National League. Since the All-Star break, that number is 6.35. Not even Albert Pujols can overcome that.
