Cardinals, Cubs gear up for important division series

St. Louis Cardinals season hinges on showdown vs. Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field

Lackey and Contreras were thrown out with the Cubs down 2-1 in the fifth inning.

After the ejections, the Cubs scored seven runs in the bottom of the sixth inning, as six different players drove in runs to cap off the wild inning. Not out, just teetering.

"Outstanding job from Luke", Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said.

"We had one inning that went really wrong". He gave up four hits and two walks while striking out nine. The Chicago Cubs hand the ball to Kyle Hendricks for the gam two start against the St. Louis Cardinals. You get one or two guys locked in, one guy throwing strikes, another guy feeling better with his stuff, next thing you know, you look up and you're in good shape. As always, there was no shortage of drama as the Cubs took game one. Chicago are 7-2 in their last 9 Saturday games and Chicago are 12-4 in their last 16 home games while the under is 11-5 in Chicago last 16 Saturday games.

"Guys step up in big games and perform well and all of a sudden, you have something because you have some momentum from the most important time".

So how'd the Cubs respond? Lackey was, of course, livid and voiced his opinion. Even after the ump kept his cool by not tossing him, the veteran pitcher wasn't done.

The Cardinals found a shortstop with a nice glove and 20-plus home run pop, lightning-fast baserunners in Harrison Bader and Magneuris Sierra and effective young hurlers in Luke Weaver, Jack Flaherty and Sandy Alcantara. He retired the first 10 he faced before Kris Bryant hit a home run. Lackey's 2-2 pitch was so good that Martinez nodded and started walking to the dugout.

Cubs catcher Willson Contreras was also ejected by Baker for arguing the call. The Cubs are 37-21 since the All-Star break, and they have spent the past 51 days in first place. "[Baker] cost me a big-league win". "Those don't grow on trees". The sixth inning at Wrigley today showed that. It looked at the start like they'd have trouble getting half that many against Martinez (11-11).

For the St. Louis Cardinals, today's loss drops them to a 77-70 overall record and 35-38 on the road. "He was on point".

Bryant ended the shutout with his 27th homer, a one-out solo shot to center field to force a 1-1 tie. "You look at ways to fix it". Let's talk about it in the comments. Bowman allows a two-run single to stretch the lead to 6-2.

"That guy, that bulldog, that everything he was in Memphis is exactly what he is up here and what he's going to be moving forward", Cardinals outfielder Harrison Bader said.

Yadier Molina, eight-time Gold Glove winner, should have handled the soft one-hopper.
