Cubs Best Cardinals in Pitching Duel
Chicago turned a good effort from starter Sonny Gray into a win over the St. Louis Cardinals at Wrigley Field. The final score was 1-0. Gray went 6.1 innings to notch the win. He scattered 6 hits, walked 4, and struck out 6. His record improves to 8-6. This win makes it 6 in a row for Chicago.

Dansby Swanson drew 1 walk for Chicago. The 27-year old shortstop had a key at-bat in the bottom of the fifth. With two out and the bases loaded, he broke a 0-0 tie with a run-scoring walk off Zac Lowther. It was his 43rd walk of the season.

"The effort we put into this one paid off," Gray said.
