Cardinals 8, Cubs 2
Mitchell Boggs scattered six hits and walked one en route to his first win since June 28, 2008. (AP)
Mitchell Boggs allowed just one unearned run in 5 2/3 innings, but the Cubs were still within striking distance before Albert Pujols hit a mammoth grand slam that gave him 1,002 RBIs for his career -- making the slugger the 23rd active player to reach the 1,000-RBI mark.
