Cardinals Vs. Cubs Final Score: St. Louis Takes Home 4-1 Victory

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Kyle Lohse continued his stellar season on Friday night in the team's 4-1 victory over the Chicago Cubs. Lohse threw seven innings, allowing only one earned run on six hits while striking out four and walking one. The Cardinals went up 3-0 in the first inning thanks to singles from Carlos Beltran and Yadier Molina and a groundout from Lance Berkman, and didn't look back from there.

That one Cubs run came in the second inning on a Darwin Barney sacrifice fly, but they wouldn't seriously threaten St. Louis after that. Mitchell Boggs and Mark Rzepczynski combined to shut Chicago out in the eighth inning before handing it off to Jason Motte, who collected his 21st save of the season.

Matt Holliday added a solo homer in the fourth to bring the game to 4-1. The two teams will be back on the field on Saturday night at 6:15 p.m. CT.
