- Tony Cruz and Brandon Moss hit home runs and Seth Maness escaped a bases loaded, no out jam in the eighth to give the Cardinals their fifth consecutive win Thursday night over the Diamondbacks in Phoenix.
- The win completed a season sweep of the seven games between the two teams this season for the Cardinals, only the fourth time the Cardinals have swept a season series of more than three games from an opponent since 1982.
- The Cardinals improved to a season-high 37 games over .500 at 82-45 and remained 4 ½ games ahead of the Pirates in the NL Central.
- The road trip continues tonight in San Francisco with the first of three games against the Giants. Michael Wacha will pitch against former Red Mike Leake.
- Blues forward Patrik Berglund will undergo surgery on his right shoulder today and will be sidelined for at least four months, the team announced on Thursday.
