The Giants beat the Cardinals 9-0 in Game 7 to end the Redbirds' 2012 season.
There will be no World Series in St. Louis this season. There will be no parade down Market Street, no 12th world championship and no rematch of the 2006 Fall Classic. Monday night in San Francisco the Cardinals hopes of a repeat of 2011 were ended at the hands of the Giants. Just like in 1996, the Cardinals, with a new manager, had a 3-1 lead in the National League Championship series. And, just like in '96, the Cards failed to get win No. 4, losing in Game 7 in a blowout. The Cardinals were done in by a series of miscues and the inability to get a big basehit. But, credit the San Francisco, the Giants had to play perfect to come back and did just that. The loss in California closes the book on an interesting season for the Cardinals…

Today marks the 10th anniversary of Jack Buck's death. What is your favorite memory of the Hall of Fame St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster?
Seemingly everybody in St. Louis—baseball fan or not—has a great memory of Jack Buck, the legendary St. Louis Cardinals broadcaster.

The Seckman girls' soccer team hope to ruin the Pioneers chance at a school record for wins in a season. Jaguars Baseball continues its perfect season.

The Pioneers have a chance to break the record on Monday with their final conference game against Seckman. They will get another shot Wednesday in the regular-season finale against Lindbergh and then again in districts, which open with another game against Webster Groves.
