Cubs In Haiku: Cardinals 3, Cubs 2

The only thing left
Was to beat the Cardinals
A matter of pride

It started out well
But couldn't have ended worse
Holliday walk off

The Cubs arrived in St. Louis effectively, if not mathematically, without a chance of making the playoffs.  But beating the Cardinals would provide a little satisfaction by delaying their division title a few more days. 

It started out great.  Three doubles gave the Cubs a two run lead in the first.  But a Mark DeRosa triple helped the Cards to tie it in the fifth.

Then, another mid-season acquisition, Matt Holliday, gave St. Louis the win on a walk-off home run.  It was another loss for our bullpen, this one being charged to Aaron Heilman.
