Cubs Hope To Hasten Cardinals' Mathematical Elimination From NL Central Race

The Cubs will host the Cardinals for their final home series of 2010 this weekend. The Cardinals' elimination number from the NL Central race is three; if the Cubs can win today and tomorrow and the Reds defeat the Padres tonight, the Cubs could eliminate St. Louis from the race Saturday afternoon. Today, the Cubs' Tom Gorzelanny returns to the starting rotation three weeks after a batted ball hit him in his pitching hand. Adam Wainwright shoots for his 20th win for the Cardinals. The game begins at 1:20 p.m. and will be televised on CSN Chicago.
