With Adam Wainwright going you would think the Cards would have this one in the bag. Well, it didn’t happen. Waino had a long, laborious first inning that resulted in four runs for the Cubbies, including two homeruns. The Cards managed two runs of Cubs pitcher Jeff Smardjia, including a sole shot by Carlos Beltran. These games happen, but the starting pitching needs to be better as does the hitting. Thankfully, everyone else is slumping as well. Next up is Jake Westbrook trying to win his first game since coming of the disabled list.
