Cardinals Club Four Homers, Hold Off Cubs
(St. Louis, MO) — Matt Carpenter, Tommy Pham, Jed Gyorko and Randal Grichuk all homered as the Cardinals built an 8-3 lead and hung on to beat the Cubs 8-7 at Busch Stadium. Zach Duke got the win in relief of starter Carlos Martinez as the Cards prevented the Cubs from clinching the NL Central. Jake Arrieta took the loss.
The Cardinals and Cubs go at it again tonight at Busch Stadium. It’s the third of their four-game series, with Michael Wacha slated to start for St. Louis and former Cardinal John Lackey for Chicago. The Cards are 82-and-75, still two-and-a-half games behind the Rockies for the second NL wild card with five games left.
