Car­di­nals 2, Cubs 1: Miles Miko­las out­pitched Cole Hamels with eight sparkling in­nings, and vis­it­ing St. Louis stayed alive in the play­off race by topping the Cubs 2-1. The Car­di­nals needed a win plus a loss by Los An­ge­les at San Fran­cisco to stay in the run­ning for a wild card. The Cubs – al­ready as­sured a fran­chise-record fourth straight trip to the post­sea­son – needed a win plus a loss by sec­ond-place Mil­wau­kee to Detroit on Satur­day night to clinch their third NL Cen­tral ti­tle in a row.
