CHICAGO — Showing no signs of an injury setback after missing the previous game due to an eye contusion, Chicago Cubs center fielder Ian Happ whacked his second dinger of the day in the fifth inning on Saturday. St. Louis Cardinals starter Adam Wainwright's only runs allowed up to that point were solo bombs hit by Happ.

An 89-mph sinker thrown over the heart of the plate was pulverized by Happ on the long ball. With his 12th homer of the season, Happ extended his streak of consecutive games with an extra-base hit to six. Happ now boasts 24 RBIs on the season. The 370-footer in the bottom of the fifth carried out to left-center at Wrigley Field, making the score 4-2 in favor of the Cards.
