Cubs Game Notes For Thursday @ St. Louis

The loss eliminated St. Louis from NL Central contention and dimmed the Cardinals' wild-card hopes. It's the complete defeat. John Lackey pitched six innings of one-run ball, and the Cubs scored five runs in the seventh inning to take the lead for good.

This also only the second time in the history of the organization making it to the playoffs in three straight seasons, last time was from 1906-1908.

The road to a repeat won't be easy. "For those guys that have been in the organization for a long time, too, I know it means a little more". He was in trouble in four of the five innings and was fortunate to leave with only three runs allowed.

Russell walloped a 2-1 pitch 383 feet down the left field line for his 12th homer of the year.

2017 was a different story.

Matheny said he didn't stay in the dugout to watch the Cubs celebrate.

Someone brought a plate of nachos to the dugout a little later, and Russell decided to make the delivery.

"I tell these kids, don't take any one of these for granted", he said.

The season, though, was eminently forgettable for Gonzalez.

DENVER - Ian Desmond homered during a six-run second inning and playoff-chasing Colorado beat Miami, hours after Major League Baseball approved the sale of the Marlins to an investment group featuring Derek Jeter. They're three-and-a-half out of a wild card spot with four games to play.

The Cardinals fell into a deep hole, and climbing out is all but impossible. The Cubs would end the inning up 5-1 and never looked back. The last time they have done such a thing was the 2007 and 2008 season when Lou Pinella was the manager.

Addison Russell of the Cubs replaced Andrew Gudermuth's snack after he knocked a plate of nachos out of his hands.

They entered the All-Star break with a 43-45 record, 5 1/2 games back of the Brewers in the Central. The team said X-rays were negative and he had a bruised left forearm. The former Cardinal struck out three and gave up two hits and two walks.

Skinny: "It's not ideal", Jedd Gyorko said.

The South County resident, now nicknamed "Nacho Man", says the attention has made him popular on Twitter. Ballpark Village is a packed house every night. Either way, the lack of acknowledgment that they've been doing much of anything, either to make the playoffs or to analyze the future, is very troubling. Stop saying he's too old. Ever since he took the managing position, the Cubs have been a different franchise. And it's almost over.

The last few weeks have been painful. For one of them, you can thank the Chicago Cubs, the proud new owner of the rivalry with St. Louis. He's a stud and studs are expensive. Don't refuse Lance Lynn money and pull another Mike Leake move.
