 ST. LOUIS (AP) -The St. Louis Cardinals' regular-season sellout streak ended at 165 games Wednesday night with an announced attendance of 39,915 in 51-degree weather for a game against the Colorado Rockies.
It's also the first non-sellout at 3-year-old Busch Stadium and the first for the franchise since Sept. 28, 2005, at the old Busch Stadium.
The team had 161 sellouts the first two seasons at the new park, missing one game in 2006 due to a rainout with the Giants that was not made up, and also sold out the last three games of the final year at old Busch Stadium in 2005.
Wednesday's attendance was about 4,000 shy of the stadium capacity of 43,975.
The end of the streak coincides with reduced expectations for the Cardinals, who have made the postseason seven of the last nine years. Longtime stars Jim Edmonds, Scott Rolen and David Eckstein have departed since the end of last season and top pitchers Chris Carpenter and Mark Mulder began the year on the 15-day disabled list while recovering from surgery.
The Cardinals' rescheduled opener Tuesday had an announced attendance of 45,996, but there were nearly 13,000 no-shows for a game that ended in 42-degree chill.
The team anticipates a crowd well short of a sellout for Thursday's series finale against the NL champion Rockies, a day game.
