RECENT TRENDS

Covers Preview - The St. Louis Cardinals finished last weekend in a first-place tie atop the National League Central, but their longest losing streak in nearly a year has quickly left them in a bit of a hole. The Cardinals, who continue their three-game set in Chicago on Saturday against the Cubs, overcame their season-high 6 ½-game deficit by going 10-5 in their first 15 games in July. St. Louis has dropped four straight since, allowing the division-leading Milwaukee Brewers to rebuild a three-game margin.
