Cardinals Rally Past Cubs

Jon Jay singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the eighth inning as the Cardinals rallied to beat the Cubs 5-4 at Wrigley Field. Carlos Beltran went 3-for-5 with a pair of RBI singles, including the game-tying hit in the seventh, as St. Louis overcame a two-run deficit. Seth Maness picked up the win in relief and Edward Mujica [[ moo-HEE-kuh ]] notched his ninth save. The Cardinals have won seven of their last eight games.

The National League Central-leading Cardinals return home from Chicago and get a day off today. Then they open a three-game series against the Colorado Rockies tomorrow night at Busch Stadium.
