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.
