Chicago Cubs clinch 4th straight postseason berth

That decision was overshadowed, though, by the blown opportunity in the eighth inning. Jose Martinez hit it to third, but Mike Moustakas threw the ball away, giving Garcia, who was already safely to third base, a chance to score the tying run.

Garcia would have scored if he didn't fall down after rounding third base, but instead he was tagged out and the Cardinals were retired in order to end the game in the ninth, losing 2-1.

Heyward hit a two-run home run off Ivan Nova with two outs in the bottom of the first, and he added an RBI single with two outs in the fourth as the Cubs held a 6-1 lead.

Before Heyward's homer, the Cubs scored five runs in their last 56 innings covering six games against the Pirates.

The report says that this increase is much more than the sexually transmitted disease prevalence around the country. The findings were published September 25 in the CDC's Sexually Transmitted Disease Surveillance Report .

The Cubs (92-66) will try to expand their half-game lead over the idle Brewers (92-67).

This could prove to be a really costly loss for Chicago, which would fall 0.5 games behind the Milwaukee Brewers in the NL Central with a defeat tonight.

The win clinched a playoff berth for Milwaukee, It's their first trip to the post season since 2011.

An unfortunate part of that is that St. Louis had a chance to win that game but some mistakes, both in terms of strategy and simply physical mistakes blew it for them.
