CHICAGO — Although it took the Chicago Cubs (58-40) several innings to come alive at the plate, they pounded out seven runs for the second time in three games to topple the St. Louis Cardinals (50-49) 7-2 at Wrigley Field on Sunday. The Cubs benefited from the departure of Cardinals starting pitcher Miles Mikolas, as they scored two runs, one of which came on a go-ahead home run by Kyle Schwarber, off Cardinals reliever Mike Mayers and went on to win handily.

Four different Cubs tallied multiple hits in the rubber match, including leadoff hitter Anthony Rizzo, who reached base 17 times against St. Louis this week. After taking three of five from the Cardinals in the five-game set, the Cubs have now won five of their last six series.
