Cubs Look to Clinch Central Title vs. Cardinals

Cubs Look to Clinch Central Title vs. Cardinals”

The Cubs were seeking to clinch the Central Division with either a win or a Milwaukee loss against Cincinnati, but the Brewers beat the Reds 7-6. Wacha has been excellent at home this year, while Lackey is having a down season overall and was ejected for arguing balls and strikes the last time he faced the Cardinals.

St. Louis hosts Chicago again tonight.

Martinez gave up four hits and three runs (two earned), walking four and whiffing six. Both those hits are home runs. Matt Carpenter was 1-for-3 with a home run, two walks and two runs to lead the way. Gyorko's home run was his 20th, Grichuk's his 21st.

The Cubs loaded the bases with no outs in the fourth but only scored one run, which came on a catcher's interference. Paul DeJong finished 2-for-4 with a double, a run and an RBI.

Chicago was down 8-3 at one point and though eighth-inning home runs by Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist trimmed the score to 8-7, the Cubs could not capitalize off of their late momentum. He's expected to rest 48 hours, as part of the concussion protocol, and will then be reevaluated. But it definitely gave me a lot more respect for the team. "Last night was pretty bad". I was confused. The nausea went away.

"We were hopeful when we got him that he could fill in on the back end", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said.

Lackey will be backed up by a lineup that sees the return of Addison Russell, who didn't start Tuesday's game, and Javier Baez, who fouled a ball off of his knee during Monday's win over the Cardinals.

Cardinals' first baseman Jose Martinez (thumb) returned as a pinch-hitter after missing the previous three games.

The Cardinals, meanwhile, enjoyed home runs from Carpenter, Jedd Gyorko, Randal Grichuk, and Tommy Pham, who left in the sixth inning after being hit in the side by a pitch.
