Game 143: Cubs @ Cardinals, 9/12/16, 7:15 pm CT

Cubs players talking sweep in St Louis, steamrolling Cardinals on their field, clinching NL Cental Title on Wednesday. If that's not motivation for Cards to battle & beat these guys - see ya next year.

Read This! - http://chicago.suntimes.com/sports/swee ... -ballpark/

Cy Young Candidate Kyle Hendricks, RH, 14-7, 2.07 vs Mike Leake, 9-9, 4.61

Hendricks' 4.38 ERA in 12 1/3 innings against the Cardinals is the highest among teams he has faced at least twice this season.

Leake has a 4.15 ERA in two starts (13 innings) against the Cubs this year. Righties are hitting .303 against Leake, lefties .266.

It's been 43 days since Aledmys Diaz was in the lineup. He was activated from the DL yesterday & may back on the field tonight.

“It would be cool to clinch in St. Louis, being on that field,” said Kyle Hendricks, the major-league ERA leader, who starts Monday’s series opener.

No Diaz ...................... crap.

New & unique lineup .............. cross fingers.

I have this little tiny nightmare trapped in the back of my head that these guys may just blow us off the field.

At this point Hendricks is firing a no-hitter through seven innings. Crowning jewel in his Cy Young campaign?

Whew ............... God Bless Jeremy Hazelbaker. Breaks up the no-no with a 9th inning HR on an 0-2 count. Wow.

Lose 4-1 but at least no no-no.

We're now only 17 games back ..........................................

Giants & Mets lost too so no lost ground for WC spot. Maybe MM goes back to a normal lineup with Carp leading off.

Somehow....just somehow....gotta find a way to beat these guys at Home.... :roll:

Matt Carpenter exited the game after his back tightened up during a seventh-inning at-bat. Matheny received "good reports" from the medical staff after the game, an indication that the injury is not considered serious.
