Year after year, Cardinals find ways to contend

ST. LOUIS (AP) Even with an ever-shifting roster, the St. Louis Cardinals have a chance to reach the NL Championship Series for the fourth straight year.

"When we show up at spring training every year we set our goal to win the World Series," ace Adam Wainwright said Wednesday. "Anything else is silly. What else are you playing for if that's not the goal."

The Cardinals repeated as NL Central champions and made it to the postseason for the 11th time in 15 years by overcoming a sputtering offense and injuries to Yadier Molina, Michael Wacha and Jaime Garcia. The profile is one of resiliency heading into an NL Division Series against the Dodgers that starts Friday at Los Angeles, which will start two-time NL Cy Young Award winner Clayton Kershaw.
