Cubs Find a Way Late in St. Louis

Another one of those weird games in St. Louis that featured the Cubs pounding out 14 hits, blowing a four run lead and then winning the game 6-4.  The Cubs were spraying hits all over the field in the early innings but couldn’t get anything across the plate as they left seven guys on base through four innings.  Ryan Dempster was strong once again going six innings and giving up four runs, all in the 6th after the Cardinals got a break on a David Freese check swing that wasn’t ruled as such.  Shawn Camp got the win out of the bullpen and he deserved is after going two stellar innings, only surrendering one hit.

The Cubs were clicking at the plate as five different guys had multi-hit games.  Starlin Castro was 2-for-5 with an RBI and a miserably failed sac bunt attempt late in the game, the Cubs won so I won’t go on about this.  Bryan LaHair seems to be getting out of his funk as he went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI’s.  The big hit of the night came from Alfonso Soriano who looped a base-hit into left field with two outs in the 8th to score the eventual winning run in Tony Campana.  The Cubs go for the abbreviated sweep this afternoon.  Full box score and highlights after the jump.

Cubs Spoil Cardinals Big Day

Okay, I’m sure the Cardinals will live, they walk away from today’s game with a loss but they also got a rather shiny ring to commemorate their World Championship last year that the Cubs had a huge hand in.  Today, the Cubs got a small piece of revenge beating the Cardinals 9-5 at a soggy Busch Stadium in St. Louis.  Adam Wainwright, who is returning from Tommy John this season was beat for the second time this year, while Jeff Samardzija earned his second win in as many starts for the Cubs.  While the Cubs won by four runs it really could have been much more as it was a tale of two games.
