St. Louis Cardinals: Top prospects report

Alex Reyes is ready to graduate to the majors, and the lower rungs of the organization boast plenty of prospects on the Cardinals' way.


Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Just one of those days, says Joe Maddon, who thought other than the poorly pitched eighth inning, his club played another solid game.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cubs' torrid second-half start came to a grinding halt on Friday. In the eighth inning, to be exact. Three relievers combined to put the first 11 Cardinal hitters on in that inning as St. Louis rolled to an 11-4 win. The loss snaps Chicago's six-game winning streak and negates the possibility of the defending champs moving into a virtual tie with Milwaukee atop the NL Central. That would have been the case with a Cubs win and a Brewers loss in Philadelphia tonight.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Mercifully, the top of the eighth has come to an end. The first 11 Cardinal hitters reached base as St. Louis plated nine runs and now lead 11-3. Carl Edwards Jr. (three runs), Hector Rondon (four) and Justin Grimm (two) all contributed to the carnage. Six hits and six walks in the inning for the St. Louis. That was ugly.
