Cardinals 4, Cubs 2
Randy Wells had his four-start winning streak snapped. (Paul Beaty/AP)
The crafty Cubs settled for a series split with the first-place Cardinals despite a wild ninth inning of moves and clutch defense that kept St. Louis within striking distance. Milton Bradley and Derrek Lee had RBIs, but Randy Wells served up a pair of two-run homers to take the loss.
