CARDINALS 4 CUBS 3 F...REDBIRDS escape WRIGLEYVILLE U.S.A. grabbing game #3 avoiding a sweep as CARDS starer CARLOS MARTINEZ was good enough combined with REDBIRDS Pen and Captain Save-A-Game TREVOR ROSENTHAL!..."GET AWAY DAY" as the REDBIRDS restore order in the NL Central Race 2k15! #STLvsCHC #Redbirds #NorthSiders #NLCentralElite2K15

The St. Louis Cardinals Game Plan on Sunday was simple and that was jump, on Cubbies starter  Jon Lester early like in the 1st before he gets settled in. The Redbirds did that back to playing "Matheny Ball' and escapes Wrigleyville U.S.A. with a 4-3 win.

"Matheny Ball" did the damage in the 1st via the "Big Fly" as Tommy Pham went solo blast and Stephen Piscotty took Lester for a two-run shot for a quick 3-0 lead. Johnny Peralta would add an RBI single in the 3rd for a Redbirds 4-0 lead as the Cubbies came back in their half of the 3rd with an Anthony Rizzo two RBI single cutting that 3-0 deficit to 4-2. Lester would leave after six allowing four runs on six hits as he was on the hook for the "L" and took the "L" falling to 10-11.




Carlos Martinez went 6 2/3 allowing just two runs on four hits as the North Siders had something brewing in the 8th but could manage just a run cutting the Redbirds lead to 4-3. Trevor Rosenthal after giving up a lead-off single to Starlin Castro gets Castro's pinch-runner Quintin Berry caught-stealing as Jorge Soler strikes out on the very next pitch getting him out of what looked to be a real jam coming. That was a hit and run and Soler missed it and Berry was throw-out at 2nd.

The Cards move to 93-56 while the Cubbies fall to 87-62...
