It is simple. This year the Cardinal Rule is to not play the Cardinals as often as possible.
They will more times than not hand you a loss.
The Cubs had to violate that Cardinal Rule, twice on Tuesday. The day game was a Cubs 7-4 victory.
Probabilities give St. Louis the win in the night cap. Cubs came out with the night time victory, 5-3.
Played two, count it down; Won two!
It is true, the Cardinals got bookend wins but, that’s just a split.
Wednesday’s loss was a heart breaker as the Cardinals rallied a win as the Cubs were just one strike from a third victory out of four games.
Lots of details are available on the Cubs Home Page.
