MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - Don’t look now but the Redbirds’ parent St. Louis Cardinals are the hottest team in baseball.

They picked up their 12th straight victory, taking down the Milwaukee Brewers 8-5 with the help of two homeruns from Paul Goldschmidt.

The stream is now tied for the Cardinals’ second-longest since the year 1900.

The Cards have the NL second Wild Card spot all but sewn up.

Side note: Former Redbird Adam Wainwright picked up his 2,000th career strikeout in the game.

Only one other Cardinal has at least that many -- the great Bob Gibson.
