The Cardinals did get to Cubs ace pitcher Jake Arrieta, a Farmington, MO native. The Redbirds scored four runs in the five and two thirds innings Arrieta pitched. Jason Heyward had the big hit off Arrieta, a two run homer. Stephen Piscotty added a ninth inning home run to make the score 8-6.
The win gives Chicago a 2-1 series lead with the chance to clinch Tuesday afternoon. Game time is 3:37 PM. John Lackey the Game One winning pitcher, will throw for the Cardinals on three day's rest as the Cardinals hope to stave off elimination and bring the series back to St. Louis for a deciding fifth game on Thursday.
