Tommy Nance, who has struggled since the restrictions on ball-grip substances, is in to try to hold them in the ninth.  Hopefully he can do it.

Goldschmidt singles, Edman scores, Cardinals win. Boo.

That clinches the seventh pick, no?

Willson Contreras leaves the game in the bottom of the third.  We're told he was not feeling well.

1-0 Cards

Several sources suggest it might be his knee.

Trayce Thompson hits a grand slam to give the Cubs a 4-1 lead, then the Cards get one right back on a Goldschmidt double (blocked nicely by the Shwy in CF) and a triple from our nemesis O'Neill to bring him in.

Megill starts a nifty 1-6-3 double play to end the inning and he is totally fired up.

4-2 Cubs going to the sixth.

Trayce comes up with men on again but this time his fly ball is caught at the warning track to end the inning.

On to the bottom of the 7th with Rucker still going.

Down to our last out in the top of the ninth, and Ian Happ does what he did to Garcia back in Chicago... a titanic home run!  Cubs lead 6-5!

Rowan Wick is in to try to close the game out.  The Cardinals get the lead man on but Wick gets Bader swinging with a big breaking ball.  One out.

A long fly to left is caught by Ortega, and the Cards are down to their last out, but it's in the form of O'Neill, whom the Cubs will somehow have to get past if they want to hold on.

Wick blows O'Neill away with a fastball right down the middle to strike him out and end it. Cubs win!

Castillo gets to celebrate after the final out for the first time in his ML career.  What a great win.
