Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel spun six innings of one-run ball and drove in both of Chicago’s runs Tuesday for the club’s 2-1 win over the St. Louis Cardinals.
After Cardinals southpaw Jaime Garcia loaded the bases in the top of the fourth inning, Hammel hit a single to left field to score Jorge Soler and Ben Zobrist. Garcia’s night ended after five innings with four hits, four walks, and seven strikeouts.
The Cardinals are .500. There’s always the next game!
