Matt Carpenter hit his 25th home run of the season, coming off the bench tonight. It's his 6th straight game hitting a home run, including one in Game 1 of the doubleheader this afternoon after hitting 3 on Friday. The homers in 6 straight are a Cards single season franchise record (Elias) while Carpenter's last 12 hits have all gone for extra bases, also a franchise record for the modern era (1900).

The Astros' run-differential is up to plus-193, which is 34 runs higher than the second-place Red Sox. They lead the Majors in ERA and rank fourth in OPS, so, um, yeah.

Javier Baez and Joe Maddon were kicked out of the game after Baez got upset with home plate umpire Will Little on a check swing strike 3 call to end the fifth inning with two men on base and the Cubs tailing 1-0. Baez wanted Little to ask for help from the first base umpire but he was denied as Little did not hesitate on the call. Maddon came out to argue and was subsequently tossed as well. It's the first ejection for Baez in his career.
