Joel Pineiro was solid over the first three frames before running into trouble in the fourth, when the right-hander allowed five extra-base hits, including two homers in a makeup game loss. The Cards scored their runs on Jim Edmonds' solo blast and So Taguchi's two-run shot.
Ted Lilly struck out seven over seven strong innings to tie a career high in victories as the Cubs downed the Cardinals. Aramis Ramirez homered twice and doubled twice, and with the Brewers' loss, the Cubs moved into a tie for first place in the NL Central.
