Do we have a "Lazy Headlines That Are Untrue and Tell You Nothing" label?

Yes, all the Cardinals do is win. Except in game one, when they lost. I can't speak for anyone else, but I would have much preferred a generic headline like "It's all tied up!" or even the cringe inducing "It's a whole new ballgame!" It's nice to know that ESPN's editors are allowed to post nonsensical shit just like their columnist peers.

usually when sportswriters use that tired old phrase it's as a response to a team or player not being traditionally good but still successful. Like, "Tim Tebow may not be able to throw a spiral to a target nor can he read a defense or take a three step drop. I admit he can't do these things, all he can do is win."

OTOH the Cardinals have an awesome pitching staff and scored a ton of runs this year. So, all they do ISN'T win. They also hit and pitch at an elite level
