Late hit eludes Cardinals in 9-8 loss to Cubs

ST. LOUIS (AP) The big late-inning hit that has been there for most of the season eluded the St. Louis Cardinals on Wednesday.

The Cardinals twice rallied from five-run deficits, only to fall short to Jake Arrieta and the Chicago Cubs 9-8. Arrieta remained unbeaten on the season despite allowing as many as four runs for the first time in nearly a year.

"I felt all the way through, I thought it was going to be a game we were going to steal," Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. "It would have been a big one to take."
