The Cards are in Chicago this weekend. Last night the Cards trailed the Cubs, who led 3-2, until a huge shakeup in the eighth inning, where the cards scored 9 runs. The first nine batters for the cards in that inning reached base and scored, the Cubs not getting an out until the 12th at bat, from their third relief pitcher. Final score was 11-4 Cards. There's a day game today at 3. The Cards finish out the series at Wrigley, tomorrow at 7.
