M1 — Zobrist collects leadoff single, but a great catch by Pham in the outfield and a couple of benign grounders bail out Cardinals pitcher Weaver. Chatwood takes to the hill next.

B1 — Control issues for Chatwood early (his #1 issue this season). Leadoff walk and bad pitch allows steal of 2B by Pham. Cardinals threatening early.

E1 — Classic Chatwood inning. Consecutive walks to begin the frame and put himself in a tough spot. Somehow worked himself out of it. Strikeout of Molina in hard-fought AB to end inning.

T2 — Just like Cards in 1st, Cubs get men on 1st and 2nd with no outs in 2nd. Two shallow singles by Schwarber and Russell.

T2 — Javy with a mishit on a pitch he probably shouldn't have swung at. Cracks his bat on awkward hit. Yet Schwarber beats out ball that died on infield grass to score. 27 RBI for Javy now.

Announcer brings up interesting point. Not as much passion or drama on these plays at the plate than there used to be. Umps just got to make a likely call and wait for a potential video review to straighten it out.

T2 — Right call made after video review. Heads-up bunt by Chatwood right there. Great slide by Russell. Rewarded for his efforts. Safety squeeze followed up by RBI hit from Zobrist. Cubs in control early.

M2 — An old-school inning right there for the Cubs. Bloop singles and a safety squeeze lead to a 4-run inning. Nice insurance for Chatwood.

Chatwood is having an anomalous start to the season. 24 walks in 29.2 IP (2nd-worst in NL), yet 29 Ks in 29.2 IP (really good). 2-3 record (meh), yet has given up over 2 runs only once (pretty good). He's got good stuff, yet struggles with command. Tough guy to figure out.

B2 — BFFs combine on that hit. Fowler lines to Rizzo for 1st out. Rizzo probably died a little inside by having to out his buddy Dexter.

Another Jekyll/Hyde moment for Chatwood. Follows up dominant strikeout with awful low, inside pitch for HBP.

E2 — After single from pitcher (putting runners on corners) tremendous diving stop by Russell on grounder. Pitch to 2B for 3rd out. Weaver called safe but overturned upon further review. Maddon 2/2 on challenges today. Chatwood gets out of yet another jam.

Another frustrating start for Chatwood. 5 Ks and three scoreless innings. But 5 walks & 1 horrible inning. Got to wonder if he'll eventually be put in the bullpen. May be better suited as a reliever. Still too early to give up on him as quality starter though. Got a lot of potential.

He's unhittable...just needs to stop trying to nimble the outside corners so much. He will be a gem if he would just let his defense help him out.

This isn't Coors Field anymore...not everything is gonna sail out for homers...lol

Got to love the golf swing from Baez on that homer. Went down and got ahold of it. Cubs back on top.

Kyle Schwarber is the new Alfonso Soriano. Making routine plays in the outfield way more difficult than they have to be. At least Soriano did the hop thing, though. Schwarber just falls down.

Dexter Fowler came oh so close to a game-winner over his old team. Luckily for the Cubs, J-Hey there to make the catch to hurt his old team.

By the way, that was Brandon Morrow's 1st blown save as a Cub. It took Wade Davis until late September to do that last year. #justsayin'

Demoralizing loss for Cubs. Cards accrued more runs (8) than hits (7). In the end, the 4-run implosion by Chatwood made all the difference. Rizzo's error might've been the most critical play of the game. Cubs will now look to avoid 5-game lose streak tomorrow night, just a week after putting together a 5-game win streak. That's baseball for ya.
