Cubs 8, Cardinals 7  (23-24)

The Cardinals lost a back and forth game in the second game of their doubleheader with the Cubs.  The two teams were tied as they headed into the eighth inning.  The Cardinals jumped out to a 5-3 lead when they scored two runs in the eighth, but the Cubs answered in the bottom half of the inning and scored five.  The Cardinals then rallied and scored two in the ninth, but they couldn’t get that next run to send the game into extra frames.

Bill Hallahan took the loss and he was responsible for most of the damage in that eighth inning.  Jim Bottomley homered and scored two runs and Rogers Hornsby went one for four with two runs.  Les Bell had three hits and he scored a run.
