Cardinals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- Thanks in part to a strong stretch by their rotation, the St. Louis Cardinals are closing in on a second straight NL Central title.

Red-hot Shelby Miller looks to continue that success Tuesday night, though runs may come at a premium against Kyle Hendricks and the last-place Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

The Cardinals (88-69), who have secured a fourth straight playoff berth and have five games left, maintained a 2 1/2-game division lead over Pittsburgh with Monday's 8-0 win in the series opener. The Pirates, who have six contests remaining, won earlier at Atlanta.
