Cubs-Cardinals Preview

(AP) -- After blowing leads in each of the first two games in the series, the Chicago Cubs finally held off the rival St. Louis Cardinals.

Jake Arrieta will try to give the Cubs a split in this four-game set by adding to his dominance over the Cardinals on Thursday.

Expected to contend for a playoff spot after years of rebuilding, Chicago (14-12) showed that it still has some work to do to compete with the Cardinals (20-7) in the NL Central. St. Louis showcased the resilience that's led to back-to-back division titles in the first two games of this series.
