(HOUSTON, TX) - The St. Louis Cardinals head to the final day of the regular season tied with Atlanta for the National League Wild Card lead.
Ryan Theriot hit a go-ahead two-run triple in the seventh inning as St. Louis overcame an early 5-0 deficit.
Allen Craig hit a three-run home run and drove in four with Skip Schumaker adding a three-run double and Nick Punto hitting a solo homer and driving in two.
The win combined with the Braves' 7-1 loss at home to Philadelphia makes the wild card race a dead heat entering tonight's season finales.
A wild-card playoff game would be held at Busch Stadium on Thursday night.
