B1 — Cubs strike 1st. 3 straight Cubs reach to start inning. Murphy with hard-fought AB that ends in leadoff single. He comes around to score soon afterward on RBI single to left-center by Rizzo.

B1 || Cardinals 0, Cubs 1

B1 — Heyward hits chopper that Wong misplays badly. Rare mistake by him. Murphy scores with ease. Seemed like Wong was too eager to try & get DP. Now, men on 1B & 2B with 1 out.

B1 || Cardinals 0, Cubs 2

B4 — Bryant showcases that his shoulder & wrist are doing just fine. Crushes no-doubter to straightaway CF on sweet swing.

M5 — Outstanding pick-off by Hendricks. He & Rizzo combine to out Bader, who gets caught leaning. Inning ends.

T6 — Cards pinch hit for Wainwright, ending his final start of regular season. Will be interesting to see if Wainwright's back with Cards next year. He's 37 & had a tough year, injury-wise.

T9 — This game certainly won't be remembered for its great defense. Combined 6 errors on rainy day in Chicago. 2 errors by Cubs in this inning culminate in 2 Cardinals runs.

F — De La Rosa stays composed & gets game-ending K on 3 straight pitches. Cubs' magic number to clinch drops to 2. Cards on cusp of being eliminated from playoff contention.
