Hopefully the Cardinals saved a bottle of champagne for Johnny Cueto, who went 8 innings against the Pirates on Sunday afternoon, picking up his 20th victory and, by defeating Pittsburgh, guaranteed the Cardinals their second division title in as many years.

The Cardinals will face the Dodgers in Los Angeles on Friday, where Adam Wainwright will take the mound against likely starter Clayton Kershaw in Game 1 of the NLDS.
