ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nolan Arenado came to the St. Louis Cardinals expecting to play into October.

After reaching the postseason twice during eight years with Colorado, Arenado will go to the playoffs in his first season with St. Louis.

Arenado, Dylan Carlson, and Jose Rondon homered to back Adam Wainwright, and the Cardinals extended their winning streak to 17 games and clinched an NL wild card berth with a 6-2 win over the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday night.
