#STLCards cut down Reds in rubber match

St. Louis Cardinals v San Diego Padres

Lackey was quickly tossed from the game by the umpire and cleared himself off the field after getting a few more words in, but then catcher Willson Contreras decided to join in. Jose Martinez singled in two runs and Tommy Pham hit a two-run homer for St. Louis, which took two-of-three in the series. Here at BP Wrigleyville, we have had much to say about Bryant's progress in this element of his game, largely believing him to have made progress in this area.

The Cardinals now have a prime opportunity to gain ground in the NL Central. The Cubs have won five of the six games this year played at Wrigley Field.

WOW! What a way to start a Cubs-Cardinals series in September with the division on the line.

Winning today was a big step forward for the Cubs in advancing to October.

Lackey said Martinez knew he was out because "he almost walked to the grass" on his way back to the dugout. Anthony Rizzo and Jordan Heyward homered for Chicago, which scored 39 runs to sweep the three-game series.

In today's game, the St. Louis Cardinals jumped out to a 1-0 lead after just the first inning. The teams have seven meetings in the final 16 games, including four games in St. Louis from Sept. 25-28.

Hendricks told reporters this week that the emphasis is taking care of their own business.

"We've got to take care of ourselves", Cubs left-hander Jon Lester said.

With the bases loaded, Baez hit a bouncer back to the pitcher. The Cardinals will have to turn the tide against their own division and hope for a couple slumps elsewhere to make it into the playoffs.

In order to at least match last year's win total, the Cards would need to go 9-6. Baseball is the perfect mix of control, intuition, and emotion, but at certain times, the three combine for a truly unfortunate incident, as was the case here.

"I think it's kind of a Murphy's Law type thing right now with our 'pen". That's the definition of insanity. The did it in six straight that year.

Cardinals second baseman Kolten Wong departed the game with tightness in his lower back. The Cubbies got four RBIs combined from #Kris Bryant and #Ian Happ and a seven-run sixth inning. Contreras could appeal any suspension, so it is unclear when his owners may be without him. That should improve. Martinez hasn't reached elite territory yet, and still represents a young and lethal pitcher, but there's still work to be done. The Cubs are 37-21 since the All-Star break, and they have spent the past 51 days in first place. The Brewers entered Friday trailing the Cubs by only three games.
