Awards

The Cardinals became the first team to have five players win Gold Glove Awards: first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, second baseman Tommy Edman, third baseman Nolan Arenado, left fielder Tyler O'Neill and center fielder Harrison Bader.[2]

Winning Streak

In September, the Cardinals went on a franchise record, 17 game winning streak. The win streak started with a two wins in St. Louis against the Cincinnati Reds, followed by three game sweeps of the New York Mets and San Diego Padres, and continued with four game sweeps of the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs. The Redbirds won their 17th consecutive game in St. Louis against Milwaukee, marking the longest win streak in the National League since 1937 and longest in the MLB since the 2017 Cleveland Indians.[3] The streak, which began on September 11, came to an end on September 29th with a 4–0 loss to the Brewers. The 17 straight wins for the Cardinals broke the previous franchise record of 14 consecutive wins in 1935.[4] This 17 game stretch vaulted the Cardinals into a commanding lead in the NL Wild Card race, and helped them reach the 2021 MLB playoffs.

Gold Gloves

On defense, the Cardinals were the first team in MLB history to win five Gold Glove Awards by a team with 5.[5] The five National League Gold Glove winners for the Cardinals were first baseman Paul Goldschmidt, second baseman Tommy Edman, third baseman Nolan Arenado, center fielder Harrison Bader, and left fielder Tyler O'Neill.[6] Arenado won his fifth National League Platinum Glove Award in a row and first as a Cardinal, which is given to the best fielder in each respective league.[7]

Rookie of the Year

St. Louis outfielder, Dylan Carlson was a nominee for the 2021 National League Rookie of the Year Award. Carlson finished third in votes for the NL Rookie of Year, behind Trevor Rogers of the Miami Marlins and Jonathan India of the Cincinnati Reds.[8] India won the Rookie of Year, playing infield for a division rival of the Cardinals. In his first full season with the team, Carlson played in 149 games and hit for an average of .266 with 18 home runs.[9]

Manager of the Year

Cardinal manager, Mike Shildt, was named a finalist for the 2021 National League Manager of the Year Award. Shildt received one first-place vote, and finished third overall behind San Francisco Giants manager, Gabe Kapler, and Craig Counsell of the Milwaukee Brewers.[10] Kapler, who won the award, led his team to the best record in the MLB, while Counsell's Brewers won the NL Central division over the Cardinals. Shildt managed the Cardinals to a 90–72 record and playoff berth. This was Shildt's second nomination for NL Manager of the Year, having won the award in 2019.[10]
