Jasen Vinlove-USA TODAY Sports

The first-place St. Louis Cardinals (92-55) play the third-place Chicago Cubs (86-61) at Wrigley in the teams' penultimate head-to-head matchup of the regular season. The Cardinals lead the season series 10-6, but the Cubs have won three of their four most recent contests and five out of the last eight, going back to July 6. St. Louis leads Chicago in the division standings by six games. After Pittsburgh's loss in Los Angeles last night to the Dodgers, the Cards still lead the Pirates by five games entering play today.
