Cardinals 12, Cubs 6
Carlos Zambrano reacts after being relieved in the second inning. (Nam Y. Huh/AP)
Carlos Zambrano wasn't sharp, allowing the first four batters to reach before giving up a grand slam, and was lifted after 1 2/3, leaving the Cubs in a hole they never managed to climb out of. Despite the loss, Chicago's magic number moved to one after the Brewers lost later on Friday.
