The Cardinals lost a hard-fought 3-1 game to the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field Sunday night to slip further back in the wild-card race. They trail the New York Mets by 1 1/2 games and the San Francisco Giants by a half-game with seven games remaining, all at home. Many of the Cardinals key hitters have slumped all month.

Goodnight from Dodger Stadium. See you in October.

The next time I walk in here, Vin Scully won't be calling games. Not sure I've come to grips with that yet.

Jon Lester made another strong statement for the Cy Young award as he threw 6.2 scoreless innings against the Cardinals giving up just 3 hits and one walk while striking out 7. He lowered his ERA to 2.28 and needs to pitch just 2.1 innings in his final start to reach the coveted 200 innings; a key stat for his own self evaluation.

The Cardinals have had distribution problems all season, which explains why their run differential has been better than their record. In September, it is exacerbated. They have scored 41 of their 88 runs in just four of their 23 games this month, including Saturday's 10-4 win here.

Here is Ross' curtain call

The father of Charlie Culberson, who hit walkoff for Scully's last call at Dodger Stadium was BORN year Scully called 1st game there (1962).

So far David Ross has two standing ovations and a curtain call as he plays his last reg season game at Wrigley Field. He just homered to put the Cubs up 1-0.

David Ross hit .214 in 2013, .184 in 2014, .176 last season. He didn't really deserve to be brought back on anything other than his value as a good clubhouse guy (and serving as Jon Lester's personal catcher). But he's responded with a good year at the plate with a 107 OPS+. Just another thing that's gone perfect for the Cubs this year.
