Cardinals name Shildt manager

The St. Louis Cardinals are removing the interim tag from manager Mike Shildt. The Cardinals have signed Shildt to a contract extension through the 2020 season. He has guided the team back into playoff contention following the firing of Mike Matheny in mid-July. The Cardinals are 27-and-12 since Shildt took over after the All-Star break and currently hold the top NL wild card spot.
