St. Louis Cardinals (86-67) @ Chicago Cubs (82-71)

B1 — Rizzo doubled off at 1B after drawing leadoff walk. Castellanos fires a liner right to the SS, who throws to 1B. Obviously, with the bum ankle, Rizzo had no shot of getting back to the bag in time.

B1 || Cardinals 0, Cubs 0

B2 — Schwarber ends up coming home on a grounder hit to 2B. Fielding error on a tough play results in Bote being safe at 1B. Schwarber would've likely scored anyway.

B2 || Cardinals 0, Cubs 1

E2 — Smooth double play by DeJong (who steps on bag & fires to 1B to get Hoerner) leaves 2 runners stranded.

T3 — Cards threatening in the 3rd. 1-out walk of Fowler followed by Edman smacking a double over Schwarber's head. Popup to shallow CF after that doesn't get Fowler home. Men on 2B & 3B w/ 2 outs now.

E3 — Another inning-ending double play. Schwarber grounds one right to the second baseman. Easy 4-6-3 double play.

E4 — DeJong makes another solid defensive play to end the inning. Rocket from Hoerner knocks his glove off, but he recovers & fields ball. DeJong fires laser to 1B. Hoerner called safe. Cards challenge. Ruling overturned.

M6 — Wieters grounds out to end the half-inning. Not particularly great hitting by either team w/ men on base today, but Yadi gets it done.

B8 — Schwarber lays down a perfect bunt single to kick things off in the bottom of the 8th. Poked to the 3B side. However, Contreras then grounds into a 4-6-3 double play.

T9 — Holland getting pulled w/ 1 out. Fowler at 2B. Strop coming in to pitch. Fowler drew a leadoff walk & then advanced to 2B on an errant pickoff throw. Lucroy (who's playing 1B) mostly to blame for the error, as he wasn't paying attention to Holland when the throw was made.

M9 — Strop bears down & notches 2 straight strikeouts to get out of inning. Cubs w/ 1 last chance. They'll look to produce a 9th-inning rally again today.

B9 — Miller remains in just to face Heyward. J-Hey works a 3-0 count but ends up popping one up on the IF on a full count. Martinez coming into the game now. He'll look to shake off last night's woes.

F — Zobrist hits a chopper toward 1B again today, but, this time, it's hit right to Goldschmidt. Cubs lose their 4th straight.
