April 25, 1984 - Cardinals Keep Abusing Cubs

Game #229 - Chicago Cubs, 2 @ St. Louis Cardinals, 4

For the second game in a row, the Cardinals have Chicago's number.  It all started in the bottom of the first.  Ozzie Smith cranked a triple and Tom Herr managed to hit a sacrifice fly to score the Wizard. 

The Cubs tied the game in the top of the fourth, but Andy Van Slyke knocked in Willie McGee in the bottom half of the the same inning to keep St. Louis ahead.  George Hendrick added a two run homer in the sixth to put the Cardinals out front for good.

Chicago threatened in the top half of the ninth, when Bruce Sutter gave up his first run of the season.  He got out of a jam by getting Keith Moreland to ground into a double play and Jody Davis to strike out.
