Cardinals-Cubs Preview

(AP) -- The St. Louis Cardinals continued their dominance over the Chicago Cubs even after failing to register a hit for much of their series opener at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs' scuffling lineup squandered a superb pitching effort but will try to redeem itself with Jake Arrieta attempting to produce another brilliant start against the Cardinals in Tuesday's opener to a doubleheader.

St. Louis (54-28) continued to play big brother to the upstart Cubs (44-37) with a 6-0 victory Monday, scoring all of its runs in the final three innings. The Cardinals didn't record their first hit on Jon Lester until Jhonny Peralta's grounder proved too tough for Chicago third baseman Kris Bryant to handle with one out in the seventh.
