Cardinals playoff chances are crumbling

The St. Louis Cardinals baseball team is having a rough start to August.

Most playoff bound teams are making a move in August - and St. Louis is not.

With a 13-2 loss to the Chicago Cubs on Friday, the Cardinals are 4-7 in the month of August.

Losing the first two of a four game series against the Cards rival drops them 14 games out of first. 

Not only are the Cards in a downward spiral - they are also losing key players. 

Matt Holliday is the latest Cardinal to go down with an injury.

The Cardinals outfielder is expected to be out several weeks after getting hit by a pitch.
