At the moment, only the Monday game has been postponed and updates are expected for the remainder of the series.

The Cardinals have not played a single game since July 29 due to the outbreak of COVID-19 within the organization.

Multiple players, including Yadier Molina, Paul DeJong, and Junior Fernandez, have all tested positive since their last game played.
