Cardinals, Brewers meet in crucial series

Minutes after the St. Louis Cardinals coughed up a lead and lost on July 14 to the Cincinnati Reds to drop to 47-46, manager Mike Matheny said they had a good run in them.

Turns out Matheny was right. But that good run wasn't with him in the dugout.

Management fired Matheny just a few minutes following his postgame prediction, installing Mike Shildt as the interim manager. Since then, St. Louis (87-69) has gone 40-23, earning Shildt the permanent manager's job and propelling itself into position to return to the postseason for the first time in three years.
