John Brebbia pitched in 70 major league games before earning his first career win. When the wait was over Authentic Michael Dickson Jersey , the individual accomplishment was an afterthought compared to the exhilaration of stopping his team’s archrival from earning its first sweep in nearly eight years at Busch Stadium.
Jack Flaherty and four relievers combined on a four-hitter, Matt Carpenter homered and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-0 on Sunday night.
Brebbia (1-1) worked around two hits in a scoreless sixth inning to earn his first major league win. Austin Gomber, Jordan Hicks and Bud Norris each pitched a hitless inning to finish the shutout. It ended the Cardinals’ season-high four-game losing streak and prevented the Cubs from getting their first series sweep in St. Louis since Sept. 13-15, 2010.
”It’s definitely nice to get a win for sure,” Brebbia said. ”What’s really nice is we got a win against the Cubs in the division, in what I think is a tight division right now so that’s probably the best part.”
Flaherty allowed just two hits while striking out seven in five innings, but he walked three and hit two batters and was pulled after throwing 97 pitches. He escaped a jam in the third inning when he struck out Kris Bryant with the bases loaded to keep the game scoreless.
”I was able to battle and execute when I needed to,” Flaherty said. ”I threw a lot of pitches in a short amount of time. I was hoping to go deeper, but that’s how it goes sometimes.”
Harrison Bader, Tommy Pham Authentic Alex McGough Jersey , and Marcell Ozuna each singled to open the sixth inning and load the bases. Pham’s single extended his hitting streak to a National League-best 11 games to chase Jose Quintana (6-5) from the game.
Bader scored the game’s first run when Yadier Molina grounded into a double play and Jedd Gyorko’s RBI single drove in Pham to make it 2-0.
Quintana was charged with the two runs and four hits in five-plus innings in his 200th career major league game.
”I felt pretty good,” Quintana said. ”I had all my stuff.”
Carpenter hit his 10th home run of the season and second of this series in the seventh inning off Brian Duensing to push the lead to 3-0.
Molina had an RBI double in the eighth, moved to third on Yairo Munoz’s infield single and scored on shortstop Addison Russell’s throwing error on the play.
Cubs shortstop Javier Baez left the game with a left elbow contusion after being hit by a pitch from Flaherty in the top of the third inning. Baez, who leads the team with 14 home runs, was replaced by Russell.
”I’m fine. Just really sore,” Baez said. ”He got me really good. Right on the elbow.”
Chicago manager Joe Maddon was content with taking two of three in St. Louis.
He had reporters listen to a minute of the Meat Loaf song, ”Two out of Three Ain’t Bad,” before starting his press conference.
”We’ll take two out of three any day of the week, especially in this ball park,” Maddon said. ”We played well. We just didn’t get any hits tonight.”

Cardinals: RHP Greg Holland will travel with the team to Philadelphia after tossing a scoreless inning Saturday night on a rehabilitation assignment with Double-A Springfield.
UP NEXT
Cubs: RHP Tyler Chatwood (3-5 Authentic Sebastian Janikowski Jersey , 4.12) opposes Dodgers RHP Kenta Maeda (4-4, 3.61) as Chicago opens a a three-game series against Los Angeles on Monday. Chatwood has issued a major league-leading 58 walks.
Cardinals: RHP Miles Mikolas (7-2, 2.43) starts the opener of a three-game series in Philadelphia as St. Louis starts a seven-game trip. He will be opposed by Phillies RHP Nick Pivetta (4-6, 4.25).

Indians pitcher Carlos Carrasco will undergo additional tests on his bruised right elbow after he was placed on the 10-day disabled list Sunday.
Carrasco was struck by Joe Mauer’s line drive in the second inning of Saturday’s 9-3 loss to Minnesota. The injury is a big blow for the Indians, whose strong rotation has kept them on top of the AL Central.
The 31-year-old Carrasco, who is 8-5 with a 4.24 ERA in 15 starts, will have imaging procedures Monday to determine if he sustained more serious damage, including whether he has a fracture.
”That’s what they would certainly be looking for,” manager Terry Francona said. ”So far they’re calling it a contusion, which would be fortunate and we’d be really happy with.”
Francona is hoping the tests will provide more clarity to the situation.
”They’re going to try and get the swelling down and take care of some of the trauma Authentic Byron Maxwell Jersey ,” he said. ”We hope to know exactly what’s going on in there or what isn’t going on.”
Carrasco has been one of the most consistent starters in the AL, going 43-26 over the last three seasons, including 18-6 in 2017.
Carrasco was hit in the face by a line drive in 2015, but made his next turn in the rotation. He broke his right hand after being hit by a line drive late in the 2016 season and missed the playoffs.
Cleveland’s starters have helped offset one of the worst bullpens in the majors. Andrew Miller is on the disabled list with right knee inflammation and the team doesn’t know when he’ll return. He was also on the DL earlier this season with a strained left hamstring.
Cleveland also recalled right-hander Shane Bieber from Triple-A Columbus to make his second major league start Sunday. Left-hander Tyler Olson was placed on the DL with a strained back muscle, and right-hander Evan Marshall was recalled from Columbus.
Right-hander Adam Plutko was scheduled to start Sunday, but pitched two innings Saturday. Francona used six relievers, including outfielder Brandon Guyer in the ninth.
