St. Louis Cardinals at Milwaukee Brewers – October 16, 2011 | MLB.com STL Recap

MILWAUKEE — However far away the promised land might have looked earlier this year, that’s how long ago August seems right now. A Cardinals team that was once on life support is now on top of the National League, and the struggles that steeled them may as well have been a decade ago.

With a 12-6 rout of the rival Brewers at Miller Park, St. Louis completed a six-game dismissal of Milwaukee in the National League Championship Series on Sunday night and advanced to the World Series to face the Texas Rangers. A franchise that has for so long defined excellence in the Senior Circuit will represent the league one more time.

It’s the Cards’ 18th NL pennant and their record sixth NL title in the League Championship Series era. They’ve been NL champions three times in the past eight years. St. Louis is aiming for its 11th World Series championship — only the Yankees have more — when the 107th Fall Classic begins on Wednesday night at Busch Stadium.
