While the St. Louis Cardinals organization is in the crosshairs of an off-the-field hacking scandal, the production on-the-field seems to be unfazed. Winners of five of their last six, the Cardinals have their series finale against the Minnesota Twins today before heading into the weekend with baseball’s best record.
And the wins should continue to come when St. Louis takes on the reeling Philadelphia Phillies at Citizens Bank Park. Cardinals tickets on the secondary market are relatively cheap for the weekend series, with the most expensive game having an average price of $59.24, with a get-in price of $19 for Sunday’s series finale. Friday’s game has an average price of $57.01, with a get-in price of $13, and Saturday’s game has an average price of $58.07, along with a get-in price of $15.
It’s the perfect opportunity to visit another ballpark while still seeing the Cardinals win baseball games. The Phillies are losers of nine straight and are already 23 games below .500, making them the perfect target for any team seeking victories. A baseball getaway awaits by using Hipmunk.com for Philadelphia flights, along with a variety of choices for Philadelphia hotels, including four options starting from less than $100 per night.
The series against the Phillies is the middle part of the Cardinals current eight-game road trip. After a home-and-home series against the Minnesota Twins that ends with two games in Minnesota, St. Louis plays three games in Philadelphia before playing a three-game set against the Miami Marlins.
The Cardinals are the only team in Major League Baseball with 40 or more wins, thanks to their ridiculous 26-7 home record at Busch Stadium. The Cardinals are 17-15 on the road and are five games ahead of the Pittsburgh Pirates in the National League Central division.
Off the field, the Cardinals are in baseball’s national spotlight from a hacking scandal involved with the Houston Astros. Full details of the events that took place are being investigated by the FBI, as the Cardinals publically stated that they are cooperating with any and all involvement to help get to the bottom of the case.
