Cardinals Vs. Cubs Score Update: Chicago Trails 4-1 In Sixth Inning

The Chicago Cubs are trailing 4-1 in the sixth inning as the St. Louis Cardinals offense has finally begun to break through against starter Chris Volstad. Volstad had limited St. Louis to one run over the first five innings, but the Cardinals managed to open things up a bit in the top of the sixth inning.

With the score tied 1-1 going into the sixth inning, Volstad was in the midst of what would've easily been his best performance of the season thus far, but he unraveled a bit. After giving up the lead on an RBI double to Carlos Beltran, Volstad left one over the plate for David Freese, who dumped it into the left field bleachers for a two-run homer.

Chicago's lone run came in the fourth inning on a solo shot from first baseman Bryan LaHair, who continues to have an exceptional season. There's still much baseball to be played at Wrigley, but now the Cubs are looking at a deficit once again as they try to finish off a sweep of St. Louis.
