ST. LOUIS (AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals clinched baseball's final postseason berth Tuesday night when the Los Angeles Dodgers lost to San Francisco.

The defending World Series champions were beaten by Cincinnati 3-1 but wrapped up the second NL wild card hours later when the Giants won 4-3 at Dodger Stadium. St. Louis will play at Atlanta on Friday in the new one-game playoff between wild-card teams.

The Dodgers' loss left them two games behind St. Louis with one game to go.
