About this Blog

CHICAGO - With the game on the line and a right-handed batter at the plate, there are few Cardinals pitchers that manager Mike Matheny would rather have on the mound than Pat Neshek. Brad Boxberger Jersey .Matheny issued an intentional walk to set up such a matchup Tuesday night in the 10th inning, but this time the percentages didnt pay off.Welington Castillo homered and drove in the winning run with a 10th-inning single off Neshek, giving the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over St. Louis that tightened the NL Central race.Right-handed hitters were just 24 of 140 against Neshek (7-2) before Tuesday for a batting average of .171.Hes done such a great job for us all season, Matheny said.St. Louis lead was reduced to 1 1/2 games over second-place Pittsburgh, which clinched a playoff berth by beating Atlanta.With four games to play, the Cardinals, who secured a post-season spot last weekend, still have a magic number of four to wrap up their second consecutive division crown.Castillo finished 2 for 5 with three RBIs
