The Chicago Cubs after ending a 7-3 Motel Swing vs the Redbirds, Phightin' Phils, and Buccos started a three-piece with the rival Redbirds today. Little did the St. Louis know it wouldn't be Kris Bryant or Anthony Rizzo they would have to worry about but one of the many talented Cubbies middle infielders!

Cubs second baseman Starlin Castro goes 3 for 3 with two bombs and six ribbies as the Cubs again stick it to the Redbirds 8-3. Castro had an RBI single in the 1st off of Redbirds starter Lance Lynn who of late has had his troubles. Then in the 5th with the score tied at 3-3 Castro takes Seth Maness deep for a two-run blast making it 5-3 Cubbies.

St. Louis in the 6th went with receiver Steve Cishek on the Hill as Castro tees off again hitting his 2nd of the day this time a "Big Fly of the three-run variety as Chicago led 8-3 . Cubs starter Dan Haren was lifted in the 5th and gets a no-decision.

"Maddon Ball" moves to 86-61 and the Redbirds fall to 92-55 as that lead is six games. The Buccos will get the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine as they will start the night 4.5 games back of St. Louis.
