ST. LOUIS — Manager Mike Shildt was philosophical after the Cardinals‘ team-record 17-game winning streak came to an end. “That was a cool run,” he said. “Let’s start another one.” Daniel Vogelbach hit a two-run homer that backed starting pitcher Adrian Houser and led the Milwaukee Brewers over St. Louis 4-0 on Wednesday night. Wednesday night marked just the third time since 1900 that a winning streak of 17 or more games ended with a shutout loss, according to ESPN Stats & Information research; the Athletics‘ 20-game win streak in 2002 and the Yankees‘ 19-game streak in 1947 were the others. St. Louis was given a standing ovation after the defeat by the crowd of 35,283. The streak, the longest in the major leagues since Cleveland won 22 straight in 2017, lifted the Cardinals into next week’s NL wild-card game against the Los Angeles Dodgers or San Francisco Giants. The Cardinals were 71-69 after losing to Cincinnati 6-4 on Sept. 10, their previous defeat. St. Louis is 21-7 in September, tying the 1930 and 1942 Cardinals for most wins in the month.
