The Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs Sunday afternoon by a final score of 6-1. Jon Jay started off the scoring in the second inning with a double scoring Yadier Molina. Matt Carpenter then added to the lead when he drove home 2 more on a single to center. The Cubs answered back in the sixth with one run but Jon Jay wasn’t done yet. In the seventh, Jay hit a three run homer to center making it 6-1. That was when things got ugly. In the bottom of the inning, Cubs GM Dale Sveum and pitcher James Russel were both ejected after arguing a check swing call. Russel clearly did not go around on the pitch by Wainwright but was called out on strikes with runners on 1st and 2nd. The Cubs did not bring anyone home and Wainwright got his 14th win of the season. The Cards will face off against Milwaukee tomorrow night.
