Patrick Wisdom was scratched from the lineup due to right wrist soreness.

The Cardinals score two off Heuer in the 9th without hitting a ball past the pitcher.

Fast forward to the 7:30 mark to see the "infield fly rule" call in the bottom of the ninth

With one out and runners on first and second, third baseman Nolan Arenado slipped while trying to catch Frank Schwindels popup. But Arenado threw to shortstop Paul DeJong covering third, and DeJong threw to second for what the Cardinals thought was a game-ending double play.

But Schwindel was called out for the infield fly rule, and there is no forceout on the play. Rafael Ortega rounded second and was tagged by second baseman Tommy Edman, but the umpires ruled the play was already dead.

It's just a matter of timing. Timing wasn't on our side, said Shildt, who was ejected after he came on the field to argue the play. Clearly took exception with it. They were OK with that, for the most part.

A request was made for an explanation from the umpiring crew, but a spokesman for the Cubs said it was declined.

After order was restored, Gallegos struck out Ian Happ swinging for the final out.

Looks like a beautiful day to watch the Iowa-Indianapolis game.

No score in the top of the fifth.

I know this game is about as meaningless as a game can get, but Boog and Dempster talking about the Marquee question of the day for three innings is nothing short of ridiculous.   The question?  -  How do you like your coffee?

Trent Giambrone makes his Cubs debut and hits the first pitch he sees into left for a base hit.  The Cubs did not bother to find a regular-season number for him to wear, so with #85 on his back he becomes the first person to run the bases with a number in the 80s in the 90 years that the Cubs have been wearing numbers.  Nobody had ever had a number in the 80s until Robert Stock took the mound wearing his birth year, 89, in his only appearance as a Cub earlier this year.

Codi Heuer is in to try to save the game.  This feels like one of the slowest-paced games I've ever watched; Effross in particular took tons of time between pitches.  I would have liked to see Wick try to close it out with a two-inning save.

Heuer gets it done and the Cubs finally win another game.  Great to see Giambrone getting a hit; his prospect status seems to have fallen recently.  Maybe he can contribute.
