If the Cardinals have any voodoo dolls wearing Cubs jerseys, you can bet they’ll get poked today. After beating the Brewers 8-4, the Birds find themselves one Chicago victory away from being eliminated. They trail the Cubs by three-and-a-half game with three to play. The Cubs have four games left. Matt Morris got the win last night, going seven innings, allowing three runs off seven hits, striking out three and walking none. Jason Isringhausen pitched 1 2/3 innings to earn his 20th save. J.D. Drew was the offensive leader for St. Louis, driving in three runs and hitting a two-run homer. It was his 15th of the season. Albert Pujols still leads in the National League batting race, but he dropped his mark to .363 after going 1-5.
