Making it count: Cubs cash in
Cubs survive, outlast rivals
Down two in the ninth, Todd Walker hit a grounder that went through Scott Rolen's legs to score the tying tallies and force extras. The Cubs capitalized in the 14th when Walker, who was 0-for-7, drove in Juan Pierre, who had doubled, on a groundout for the win.

Series at a glance:
Cards let one get away
Scott Rolen hit a go-ahead, two-run double with two outs in the seventh but allowed two runs to score in the ninth on an error, and the Cards fell in the 14th. Josh Hancock was the last of eight pitchers used by the Cardinals and worked three perfect innings before taking the tough-luck loss.
