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…

St. Louis Cardinals pitcher Kyle Lohse and San Francisco Giant Matt Cain meet again for a pitching duel for the final game of the National League Championship Series Monday night at 7 p.m. Central Time.

Associate local editor Joe Scott is a lifelong St. Louis Cardinals fan whose first memory in school involves listening to the Cards play in the 1968 World Series. Fortunately, the nuns at St. Gregory were also Cardinals fans. (Read down for the Brewers' counterpoint and vote in our poll. Visit our live blog at 2 p.m. Sunday.) Yes, the Brewers won more games over the course of the season, finished ahead of the Cardinals in the Central Division and won the season series over the Cards. Yes, they won more home games than any other team in the regular season. How much does that matter in the postseason? About as much as Philadelphia’s Major League-leading 102 wins mattered in the division series. The pressure is on the Brewers to win now, just…
