Welcome to the live blog of Game 162 of the 2011 St. Louis Cardinals season. The Cardinals enter tonight's game in Houston tied with the Atlanta Braves for the National League Wild Card. Atlanta will host the Philadelphia Phillies tonight.

I'll be watching the game and providing commentary, along with my grandfather, a Cardinals fan since 1941. You can catch the game on Fox Sports Midwest or ESPN2.

Chris Carpenter (10-9, 3.59 ERA) takes the mound for St. Louis while the Astros send Brett Myers (7-13, 4.31) to the hill.

Will the Cardinals win and play at least one more game? We'll find out. Game time is 7:05 CST.
