St. Louis Cardinals (50-48) @ Chicago Cubs (57-40)

Miles Mikolas (10-3, 2.79) vs. Jose Quintana (8-6, 3.96)

Finale of five-game set. Series tied at 2-2. All-Star Mikolas facing off against Quintana, who's dominated in July throughout his career. Rizzo leading off again. He's led off every game this series.

M1 — Cardinals strike 1st, which has been a theme of the series. Carpenter starts off with bunt single & then reaches 3B on ground-rule double by Molina. DeJong brings Carpenter home on sac fly.

E1 — Mikolas breezes through 1st frame. 3 outs on 10 pitches, including 2 swinging Ks. Rizzo strikes out to start game. Just the 2nd time that he's been outed when leading off a game for the Cubs this year.

Even when he's not hitting homers, Carpenter's getting over on the Cubs.

M2 — Quintana escapes bases-loaded jam as Molina strikes out looking to end inning. Cubs wisely choose to pitch around Carpenter, and it pays off.

Four straight curveballs to Molina culminates in this gutsy heater. Quintana paints the corner to get the strikeout and end the inning.

E2 — Baez gets leadoff single but then gets caught stealing. He initially slid in safely but came off bag & was tagged out as Happ strikes out on same play. Cubs remain scoreless.

E3 — Cubs strand 2. Russell gets 1-out single. Quintana bunts him over. Rizzo then gets intentionally walked. Bryant grounds out to end inning.

T4 — Munoz continues his solid series. Drills double into LF corner. Fowler coasts from 1B to score with ease. Man on 2B with 1 out.

M4 — Quintana wins a battle with Carpenter. Swinging K to end inning. But Cards tack on a run in 4th to increase lead.

B4 — Cubs finally get to Mikolas. Happ smacks double past 1B & down RF line. Heyward comes in to score from 2B.

B4 — Contreras swings on 1st pitch. Gets single on hit very similar to Happ's (except to 3B side). Happ scores from 2B to tie game.

E4 — Russell grounds out to end inning. Cubs get 2 runs in inning, though. Leadoff walk of Heyward sparks them.

Contreras was swinging on the first pitch. Screamer down the third-base line scored Happ and tied the game.

M5 — Interesting inning. Happ makes great catch at the wall. Also, Ozuna's brutal honesty hurts him. Ump says that pitch hit him, but Ozuna says that it hit his bat. He then grounds into DP.
