Cardinals starter Lance Lynn got roughed up for six runs on 11 hits in just 4.1 innings as the Chicago Cubs held off the Cardinals 6-4, Saturday evening at Wrigley Field. It was Lynn’s second shortest outing of the season.
Cubs starter Matt Garza allowed a season-high 10 hits in 6.2 innings, but held the top scoring offense in the National League to two runs while improving to 5-0 with a 1.24 ERA in his last six starts.
The Cardinals threatened late scoring single runs in each of the last three innings. Jon Jay had four hits and Matt Adams went 2 for 4, but the Cardinals left 13 runners on base and were just 3 for 11 with runners in scoring position.
