Pirates-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals have a history of playing some of their best baseball in the season's final month.

With Matt Holliday locked in at the plate and Yadier Molina healthy, the team appears poised to make another surge to the playoffs.

Tied atop the NL Central for the first time in six weeks, the Cardinals open September against another team looking to make a postseason run when they host the Pittsburgh Pirates on Monday.
