M2 — The wind blowing out helps the Cubs out. Bader gets ahold of one for a jack to deep CF. However, it falls short, with Almora catching it at warning track. Montgomery can breathe a sigh of relief.

B2 — Schwarber gets under one & nearly hits extra-base hit to deep LF. Ozuna jumps up & makes amazing overhead catch for out. Contreras has to retreat back to 1B.

B4 — Cardinals nearly suffer a disastrous mistake due to miscommunication. Bader & Pham bump into each other while Pham makes catch in right-center on Schwarber flyout.

B5 — Baez & Maddon ejected after arguing with called strike three on checked swing. Baez ticked off that home-plate umpire didn't defer to 1B umpire.

Not to call out an umpire, but Will Little has seemed to be at the center of several controversial calls involving the Cubs this year. And his short fuse right there on the ejections was kind of ridiculous. Ejecting Baez simply for tossing his bat is too much.

One thing about Maddon that's a major factor behind why he's so well-respected around baseball is his undying commitment to defending his players. No matter the umpiring controversy, Maddon never fails to step up and support his guys.

B6 — Greg Holland pitching for Cards & struggling so far in 6th. He's proof positive of why pro athletes shouldn't chase money. He went from being a 41-save guy last year to opting out of his contract, waiting around for a bigger contract, signing a mediocre deal really late & becoming just a run-of-the-mill middle reliever.

B6 — Holland walks La Stella on 4 straight pitches after throwing wild pitch that nearly brought Schwarber home. Game tied at 1-1. Pitching change coming.

E6 — Cubs use small ball to take control of game. Hard-hit infield single by Rizzo puts them up 2-1. Russell then comes home on fielder's choice off bat of Bryant.

E6 — Cards, meanwhile, suffer through bad defensive inning. Several pitches in dirt & infield blunders culminate in 3-run inning for Cubs.

E6 — Funny how it works with controversial ejections. Always seem to light fires under teams. Cubs rally around themselves the inning after Baez & Maddon get kicked out.

T7 — Matt Carpenter homers. Yes. He homered again. 6 HR in this series. He's hotter than any hitter in baseball out of All-Star break.

T8 — Strop nearly picks off Pham at 1B. Called safe. Hyde (bench coach filling in for Maddon) challenges. Call stands. Strop then walks Molina. Tying runner in scoring position.

B8 — Rizzo misses out on chance to have his 1st 5-hit game. Flyout to LF makes him 4-5 on the night.

T9 — Got to wonder why Wilson was brought in for this spot. Coming in late in a close game is not right for him. He issues 2 straight walks to start inning & put Cubs in jam.

T9 — Rizzo has cornered the market on fielding bunts. He charges over to 3B line & guns throw over to 3B to get lead runner.

F — Late 4-run turnaround by Cards does Cubs in. Really emotional game featuring lots of late scoring. Things seemed to change when Rosario pitched to Carpenter, & he went yard in the 7th. Rizzo goes 4-5 for Cubs in leadoff spot.

Cubs left 14 on base tonight. Other than Rizzo, not a lot of positive things to say about Cubs' hitting in nightcap.
