The Rockies lead Milwaukee and St. Louis by 2 1/2 games for the final wild-card slot. Lackey is 1-0 with a 3.46 ERA in two starts this season versus the Cardinals, yielding two runs over seven innings against them in a no-decision on June 2. "Just what we need".

Tommy Pham, like Weaver, never has played a full season in the majors.

Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs take the field in Saturday MLB at Wrigley Field.

The glove work, Matheny said, will come.

Time is running out on this Cardinals team.

Cubs starting pitcher John Lackey and catcher Willson Contreras were ejected during Chicago's Friday afternoon game against the Cardinals after fiery exchanges with home plate umpire Jordan Baker. Despite the chaos, and 2-1 deficit, the Cubbies fed off the energy, now currently leading 8-2 late in the game with a chance to notch their fourth straight victory. Baseball is the perfect mix of control, intuition, and emotion, but at certain times, the three combine for a truly unfortunate incident, as was the case here. He is hitting.306 now. It was going well until one inning ruined everything. Having to go up against Carlos Martinez, who has had an awesome year. "I've already got his watch at my home", said Molina, who said he actually hopes he loses. "You look at ways to fix it". "I can't get too far ahead of myself". I think it was a nice little spark for us. Could have been better. "I'm happy for him", Molina said. "That turned into some energy that we all needed". "But we always know these games can go one way or the other hurry in this place". After Bryant singled and and Anthony Rizzo walked, Alex Avila singled in the tying run. Not only did it give the Cubs a lead, it ensured the ejection of both Lackey and Contreras, becoming truly the most valuable play of the game for the Cardinals. The Cubs are 37-21 since the All-Star break, and they have spent the past 51 days in first place.

Lackey said Baker missed a pitch and threw him out "half-heartedly because he knew he messed up".

Will Carlos Martinez ever field a clean grounder with runners on second and third this season, or ever?

"That shouldn't be overlooked". It was a bad call that could have had HUGE implications had the Cubs not woke up.

"It's about moving your feet", said DeJong. Martinez looked dominant early on, retiring the first 10 batters he faced. Let's talk about it in the comments. Contreras had to be restrained by his manager and teammates and forced off the field.

But pitching issues are the last thing the Cubs want down the stretch.

Contreras also got into it with Baker.

"It's a tough time of year to be fighting that hard to have kinda normal depth back there".
