Contreras 2 HRs, Butler 6 scoreless, Cubs stop Cardinals 3-2

The Butler Did It- Cubs 3 Cardinals 2

Now they are coming home to face Butler, who was acquired from the Rockies in the off-season.

Notes: The game between the Phillies and Nationals was postponed because of rain. This gave players and staff at least a moment to breath before the emergency double-header the following day. As a result, Rizzo was ruled out at first the inning came to an end. However, this is part of baseball.

"The fans are the ones who make those games more intense, because they have good fans like us", reliever Pedro Strop said. This is probably one to stay away from unless you're going with the over.

Chelsea hopeful of sealing title at West Brom, feels Courtois
This step was big for us, a big win. "Now we need to do another step". "Also, we must know to play against West Brom is not easy". Only Manchester United (13) have won more Premier League titles. "So we have to finish the season strong".

On Sunday, the Cardinals will be bringing out RHP Adam Wainwright for the start. Those fourth-place Cubs are headed to St. Louis for a three-game series starting this evening.

The Cubs' rotation needs a shot in the arm. I'm surmising due to the 18 inning game, travel, double-header, travel; and, needed rest in general. In 2016, he was 0-3/5.64 in 22.1 IP/3 HR/14 ER/16 Runs with 15 strikeouts. It is likely that this is a short stay, seeing as how he would attain Super-Two status despite not being able to pay due to a log-jam on the Cubs roster. Leake will be looking to forward to extend his four-game win streak.

On offense, the Cubs have some great hitters. In his seven season career, he is 9-5 against the Cubs.

NY [U.S.], May 13: NASA will be launching its Space Launch System in 2019, but has ruled out putting a crew on board. The delay in the EM-1 launch will affect the next launch, EM-2, as well.

Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez had his second straight two-hit game, Tommy Pham kept up his strong start to the season and St. Louis beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 on Saturday. Butler threw his slider at an average of 91.6 miles per hour according to Statcast, which is interesting because Statcast clocked his slider at an average of 87.5 miles per hour in 2016. "Additionally, the clubs exchanged worldwide draft slots as part of the trade." . Saturday will be the 21-year-old's fifth start of the season after being called up from advanced Single-A Palm Beach last week. He has a 3-3 record, in 10 games, with an impressive 1.96 ERA, when facing the St. Louis club.

The Cubs, who allowed eight unearned runs in the previous five games, rank in the middle of the pack in the majors in several defensive metrics, including turning batted balls into outs. In his last start, the lefty struck out nine against just two walks against the Yankees, giving up two runs.

This could be a very solid match-up between Leake and Butler.

Meant to shoot down incoming North Korean missiles, Beijing has called the system a threat to its own national security. There is a strict Chinese boycott of South Korea that has been in effect since the THAAD defenses were installed.

The fourth inning was when the Cardinals really took control though. He has the most experience against the Cubs than pretty much any starter in the game right now.
