Luis Valbuena and Arismendy Alcantara each hit a solo shot for the Cubs to end a short two game skid. Neil Ramirez earned the win in relief. Pat Neshek was charged with four runs in two-thirds of an inning for his first loss of the season as the Cardinals dropped their third straight. Jhonny Peralta and Matt Holliday each drove in a run in the loss.
