Brewers lost to Phillies 4-1 so Cubs have a chance to make up a full game in the division tonight.

Chicago Cubs (39-27) @ St. Louis Cardinals (36-31)

Kyle Hendricks (4-6, 3.48) vs. Carlos Martinez (3-3, 2.50)

Cubs coming on dominant hitting performance. Hendricks starting on the mound for Chicago. He'll be looking to escape a recent downtrend. Zobrist starting in 2B & leading off for Cubs as Baez sits.

Unbelievable how, this year, Hendricks has taken on Lackey's curse from last year. So many starts marred by home runs in the first couple of innings.

T3 — Cubs finally get a run across in a long 3rd inning. Contreras fights off an outside pitch that ricochets off first baseman's glove & enables runner to score from 3B, as Contreras reaches 1B safely.
Martinez for St. Louis has already thrown 61 pitches.

T3 || Cubs 1, Cardinals 2

B3 — Zobrist channels Baez with great tag applied on stolen-base attempt. Contreras guns down Pham at 2B.

T4 — Russell knots the game up with a solo homer on a moonshot to straightway center. 4 home runs in less than 13 innings in this series so far for the Cubs.

E4 — Frustrating inning for Hendricks. Gives up 2-out RBI single that's nearly caught by a diving Heyward in right. Adding to frustration is the fact that single was by a pitcher.

E4 || Cubs 2, Cardinals 3

T5 — Schwarber with a big hit. Single to center scores Bryant with ease as Contreras slides in safely at 3B. Chalk it up as another RBI for Schwarber in what has been a great series for him thus far.

T5 || Cubs 3, Cardinals 3

Not sure if an MLB player has ever been ejected for giving the ump the side-eye. If not, Ozuna is well on his way to becoming the first.

T7 — Happ with a clutch double into RF corner. 8th double this season gives Cubs the lead.

T8 — Heyward with a 2-run bomb against his old team. His 1st hit of the series. Cubs with 10 hits on the night.

F — Morrow escapes jam after letting runners reach 2B & 3B with 1 out. Consecutive Ks end the game. Cubs can earn vaunted road sweep of rival Cards tomorrow.
