The Saint Louis Cardinals continued their winning ways over the six-game West Coast road-trip this week, as manager Mike Matheny and his squad took two-of-three against both of the San Diego Padres -- as well as against the Los Angeles Dodgers as well, and finished their trip to California with an impressive 4-2 record.
Entering the four game series coming up against the Kansas City Royals, Saint Louis owns an overall record of 32-17 at the moment -- which is good enough to not only be the best record in the National League, but also the best record in all of the major leagues.
As the Cardinals have finished 50 games out of the 162 game slate, they are currently 14-8 at home inside Busch Stadium. Even more impressive though, Saint Louis is currently 19-9 on road so far this season and also own the highest differential in the entire MLB at +66 on the runs scored (233) against runs allowed (167).
In the teams last ten ball games, the Cardinals are 7-3 overall and have currently won their last two ball games overall as they defeated the Royals on Monday afternoon in Kansas City. The two teams will be playing Tuesday's game two in Kansas City before they play on Wednesday and Thursday in St. Louis at the Cardinals home field, Busch Stadium.
