Cardinals: RHP Lance Lynn (4-1, 2.75) takes on Boston LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (1-1, 2.80) in the first of a two-game series on Tuesday.

Willson Contreras #40 of the Chicago Cubs rounds third base after hitting a solo home run against the St. Louis Cardinals in the second inning at Busch Stadium on May 12, 2017 in St.

Quintana allowed five hits and walked four in seven innings. "That's baseball, man. We're out there playing with a bunch of pansies right now".

"It's special, every time you have your family and your mama here", Molina said. Friday night's game at Nationals Park will be made up Sunday as part of a day-night doubleheader. I can still have better fastball command.

Entering the game with a 6.37 ERA, the 35-year-old Wainwright had permitted an opponents' batting average of.353. Happ delivered his first career hit was a two-run homer, which cut the Cardinals' lead from 5-1 to 5-3 in the seventh.

"I think all of a sudden you're going to see something's going to click and he's going to be back close to where he had been", the manager said. I don't think it breaks the intent of injury.

"It was actually pretty good", he said of his day overall.

When the Chicago Cubs traded for Eddie Butler this offseason, the comparison to Jake Arrieta was impossible not to make.

BREWERS 11, METS 4 Travis Shaw capped Milwaukee's eight-run fifth inning with a three-run home run, helping the Brewers beat visiting NY. The 410-foot blast left Molina's bat at almost 106 miles per hour, giving Wainwright all the offense he needed.

The play in question happened during the fifth inning.

BRAVES 8, MARLINS 4 Tyler Flowers homered and drove in four runs to help visiting Atlanta end a six-game losing streak by beating Miami. Carpenter's swing produced a towering 414-foot shot to right center field, his eighth homer of the year. The 12 year vet has posted a nightmare 6.37 ERA, this season, and has yet to have a quality start. No one is starting to panic just yet in Chi-town but the restless fidgeting has begun. "It was nice to get one against him". But the Cubs still are waiting for Arrieta's velocity to rise from the low-90s. The slide rule clearly isn't ideal, but it's part of the evolution of baseball, and is here to stay - though will probably be tweaked as time goes on and incidents like this keep happening.

When Leake lacked his sharp stuff last season, it seemed to end up burning him more often than not-that his career high in runs allowed for a season (101) came previous year corroborates that view. But Arrieta still gave up seven hits and four runs in six innings, walking one and whiffing five as his ERA rose to 5.44.

Tommy Pham and Magneuris Sierra may not know how long they will be with the St. Louis Cardinals, but they intend to make the most of the opportunity. Arrieta even hit Kolten Wong with a pitch after getting ahead 0-2 in the third, Wong scoring on Carpenter's home run.

The crowd of 47,925 brought the series attendance to just under 141,000. Biagini (1-1) gave up four hits, walked none and struck out three in his second career start.
