Cubs In Haiku: Cubs 6, Cardinals 3

Cubs salvage a win
Avoid sweep in St. Louis
Jake Fox the hero

It looked like another Cardinal walk off.  But Matt Holliday was caught breaking the rules with a wide slide, and the Cubs got a double play to end the ninth inning with the game tied.  The Cubs failed to score in the 10th, but Esmailin Caridad got the Cards 1-2-3 in the bottom of the inning. 

Then, in the top of the 11th, Jake Fox hit a 2-run home run to give the Cubs the lead.  A "drama-less" 11th for Carlos Marmol let the Cubs leave town with a small bit of pride intact as they avoid getting swept by the Cards.
