story, 359-round draft pick. len: heard it! [laughter] j.d.: 5-mile-an-hour fastball. what's up with that? 5-4, cubs. 35th-round draft pick, so supposed to be the guys with the marginal stuff. profiles as a back of the rotation guy. maybe, maybe he will get to the big leagues but typically you don't find 95-mile-an-hour fastballs in the 35th round of the draft. maybe he didn't have it then maybe his mechanics were so bad. en: right? high for ball one to junior lake. kevin gregg will get the bottom of the night. craig, holliday, freese.
len: blake parker, the cubs pitcher of record. remember rosenthal for the cardinals after giving up the hree runs. so rizzo basically gave himself up. looked like in that swing down and out in the count and wanted to get licked and he did. i'm guessing. but -- j.d.: well, regardless of his intention, for him to get that man over, at least. so he'll get high-five's from the visiting dugout. well, you got the right guy up there. boy, castillo, the at-bats he has been having, got to like his chances.
a little jelly-legged on that breaking ball. fortunately for him, it was not called a strike. good day's work. when your team has five and u scored two and driven in two, that's a good day. freeman, the lefty, getting ready. len: and he just got hit, and pretty high. i thought he got hit high last night, too. j.d.: he did.
j.d.: couple of hard-throwing right-handers. en: kelly with a sub3.00 earned run average. e's been really good lately. j.d.: edwin had been on a nice roll but struggled his last time out. len: braves are looking to win their 15th consecutive ballgame. they are scoreless. at home against the marlins. bottom of the eighth there's three hits total in the ballgame. fish have two. braves have one. cards get a break because the reds did lose to the padres, 3-1.
cardinals two up on cincy going into play today. and they have now just started in colorado. j.d.: wants to know where the pitch is. throwing his arms up saying never mind the swing. where is the pitch? thrown a couple sliders in this inning that he thought were right there but hasn't been ble to get the call. they are loaded on the walk.
really have to like the cubs' approach tonight. be ready to hit. j.d.: and be willing to take your walk. seventh walk of the evening. for cubs hitters, and the cardinals have only taken one. j.d.: the man of the match right now. len: cardinals actually a better average with runners in scoring position hitting .400. cubs are .250 but that's ok. they have had a lot more chances.
the shortstop descalso has got to throw to first and he gets barney. the cubs add a run. we go to the bottom of the ninth 6-4. could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know the ancient pyramids were actually a mistake? uh-oh. geico. fifteen minutes could save you...well, you know.
the wait is over. olive garden's never ending pasta bowl is back. unlimited breadsticks. unlimited salad. never ending bowls of pasta for just $9.99. did i mention it's all unlimited? never ending combinations of pasta and sauce. like new asiago garlic alfredo and even unlimited meatballs, sausage or new chicken fritta for $2.99. the never ending pasta bowl is back. it's all unlimited, but not for long. go olive garden! we're all family here.
len: here's kevin gregg. he was out of work for a bit. in april. and he's looking for his 25th save of the year. what a nice under-the-radar pick-up. j.d.: yeah. a great opportunity for him in chicago to re-establish his value and boy, he came along at the right time when he really needed to solidify things in the bullpen. taking over and done a heck of a job. awfully excited about that insurance reason at the top of the inning, because this is a uzz saw he's got to go through gregg, holliday and freese here at the top of the ninth. len: quiet series so far for craig.
1-7. jumps all over the first pitch. a fastball, and he fouls back. his 86 driven in despite runs speaks to his approach and incredibly high average with runners in scoring position. len: fifth in the league in batting coming in. 317 no down to .315. j.d.: i don't know if kevin gregg experiences any anxiety
oh, that deflects off gregg and goes right to castro and they get the second out and everybody on the infield heads right to kevin gregg. he wants the ball. j.d.: ha ha, he's so calm. what's the big deal, fellows. ooh, that's scary. that will go 1- 6-3. j.d.: find out just where it got him. len: oh, man. ack of the right shoulder? freese very upset. needed a line shot. thought it was going to get him to center. shake it off a little bit. j.d.: sturdy as those big christmas trees he grows out there in oregon.
en: so a fortunate bounce. jay, 0-3. back to gregg. cubs win! maybe their best win of the year against their archrivals trailing late off a guy firing bullets at 100 miles an hour and they get three runs in the eighth and come back and stun the cardinals. 6-5, the final. >> coming up on wgn news, the bodies of two gunshot victims are found in a driveway. we'll have details. >> and turning to a wedding chapel to send a message and a faith annual march which means
