CHICAGO (AP) – Auto sprinter Juan Yepes at home to Nolan Gorman to lead the 11th inning, Brendan Donovan doubled down on the lockout run and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 Sunday night.
Ypez lined up his shot in the tiebreak and Donovan beat Daniel Norris (0-4), who made a perfect 10th inning.
Genesis Cabrera (3-1) threw four rounds in honor of Adam Wainwright, including a perfect eleventh, and allowed a two-stroke to win.
St. Louis won for the sixth time in eight games and took the rubber match out of a five-game series. The Cardinal tied at 3 in the ninth after Chicago broke the 3-2 lead for eighth.
Harrison Bader’s second hit in the game was a three-way wall in the center of the field off Rowan Wick ahead of the ninth. Badr scored one goal through hitter Lars Nootbaar, tied the match and befriended Wick for the first time in five chances.
The Cubs pinched hitter PJ Higgins with an RBI double ring down the right field line off the Cabrera to break the 2-all tie in the eighth. Patrick Wisdom, who scored two of his goals in the match, scored.
Jason Hayward and Frank Schwindle had the RBIs to give the Cubs a 2-0 lead. Nolan Arenado singles in two innings in the fifth to equalize.
Paul Goldschmidt cut a pair of court hits, extending his streak at base to 42 games. The NL batting leader hit safely in a two-game losing streak after his 25-game opening batting streak ended with a double-header on Saturday.
Albert Pujols, in DH on Sunday, continued to increase baseball rosters all the time. The 42-year-old picked the Wisdom Gauntlet for 4th for a 3319 stroke, tying it with Paul Molitor for 9th on the all-time list. He also played in his 3001 game, tying him to Cal Ripken Jr. for eighth.
Cubs rookie Christopher Morell picked third place to push his football career streak to 20 games, expanding a franchise record. Nico Horner scored two of the two goals and scored a half.
Both starters were practically in seven runs not making decisions.
Wainwright allowed to run twice while dispersing nine strokes and walked twice. No one was hit.
St. Louis’s Justin Steele limited it to two rounds, one with seven hits. Steele’s powerful outing was his longest this season and tied for the longest stretch of his career. The Cubs have not won sophomore year since April 9.
The Cubs led 1-0 in the first game over the Schwendel sack fly.
Horner scored a double down the line in the fourth game and scored in Heyward’s singles to make it 2-0
The Cardinals tied for fifth in three straight singles, with Arenado smashing mid-race.
Wainwright and Yadur Molina made their 315th start as Batteries, and their third ever in Major League history. It’s one game behind the Boston/Milwaukee Braves duo of Warren Spahn and Dale Crandall for second (316).
