Cubs rebuff archrivals
Cubs 4, Cardinals 2
Good day at the office: Jason Marquis dealt his former team a big blow. (Jeff Roberson/AP)
 Murton's big blast
Matt Murton drilled a three-run homer in a four-run third, and Jason Marquis frustrated his former team for 6 1/3 innings as the Cubs won three of four in the series -- going 11-5 this season -- to push St. Louis seven games back. With Milwaukee's win, Chicago stayed one game ahead in the NL Central.
