Ben Zobrist starting at second base Friday for Cubs

St. Louis I can't see being much of a factor, although they have good pitching.

"It's a pretty big spot right there", he said.

The Cubs clinched the division on Sept. 15 last season but this year, they woke up on the same date getting ready for a battle with the St. Louis Cardinals with plenty still to be decided in the National League Central.

"I always try to take advantage of my at-bats", he said. Who cares if his arm is relatable to swiss cheese due to an innings load that would rival a Dusty Baker run Cubs team in 2002-03.

Martinez gave up 7 runs and 6 hits in 5⅓ innings.

Things took a very interesting turn then in the fifth.

John Lackey and Willson Contreras are such babies. "Really, the hope was that we could win that game and allow Montgomery to be available out of the bullpen for part or all of the Cardinals series (this weekend)". Then all hell broke loose. Before the play even ended, Lackey charged Baker to berate him with a host of expletives and was quickly ejected. The catcher flung his mask into the dirt, but it bounced up and made contact with the umpire's leg - instantly raising questions about a potential suspension. Sometimes, you've got to go back and learn a few more lessons, learn yourself a little better (Pham got better contact lenses), figure out the differences between the leagues. Let's talk about it in the comments.

Hendricks told reporters this week that the emphasis is taking care of their own business.

Wilson struck out Matt Carpenter to end the inning. Chicago logged eight hits and four walks with Kris Bryant going 3-4 with a homer, two RBI's and two runs while Jon Jay, and Alex Avilia both driving in runs and scoring. Boston began the day with a three-game lead over the second-place New York Yankees. Then the wheels came off after that for the Cardinals.

Lackey said Baker missed a pitch and threw him out "half-heartedly because he knew he messed up".

BOSTON - Drew Pomeranz pitched six innings of one-run ball, and Andrew Benintendi (University of Arkansas) had three hits and drove in three runs to lead the AL East-leading Boston Red Sox past the Oakland Athletics.

Their starting shortstop has been on the disabled list since Aug. 3 with a strained right foot and plantar fasciitis. It was looking like it was going to be one of those hard-fought games for us.

"We have a good energy in the dugout right now", manager Joe Maddon said. On the bright side for the Cubs, expanded rosters mean they have no shortage of pitchers (or catchers) on their active roster.
