Slump busters: Cubs rip rivals
Cards grounded at Wrigley
Albert Pujols ignited the Redbirds with a two-run homer, his 32nd, in the first inning, but Mark Mulder proceeded to allow seven runs in four innings of work, and the Cardinals were unable to climb back into it. David Eckstein and Abraham Nunez chipped in with RBIs for St. Louis, which had its four-game win streak snapped.

Cubs slam brakes on skid
Derrek Lee hit his 34th and 35th homers and the Cubs scored in every inning but one to end an eight-game slide. Greg Maddux tossed his first complete game since '04 and Aramis Ramirez went 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
