Jon Lester leads Cards' charge for record 15th straight win

The St. Louis Cardinals will bid for their team-record 15th consecutive victory when they visit the Chicago Cubs Saturday.

The Cardinals (85-69) swept the Cubs 8-5 and 12-4 in a doubleheader Friday to push their winning streak to 14 games, which tied the 1935 team for longest in franchise history.

They increased their lead over the Philadelphia Phillies to five games for the second National League wild-card spot. They reduced their magic number for reaching the playoffs to four with eight games to play.
