Enhanced Box Score: Cubs 3, Cardinals 4 – May 13, 2014

Enhanced Box Scores

A walk-off hit by pitch in the 12th inning.

Yeah, I’d say that’s pretty much the exact opposite of what the Cubs did to the Cardinals on Tuesday night.

Jake Arrieta struggled with his command once again – even when he was flashing his usual nasty stuff, he wasn’t really hitting his spots – and made it through just four innings. That was particularly unfortunate, given how long the game wound up going. The Cubs took an early lead on a Luis Valbuena homer, lost that lead mid-game thanks to some bullpen ineffectiveness, and then came back to tie things up in the 9th!

But you know how these things end. Justin Grimm played his part in this one, and the Cubs kept things close only to break folks’ hearts. As they do.
