MLB: St. Louis Cardinals at Chicago Cubs Jon Durr-USA TODAY Sports

No team clinched a playoff spot on Saturday. The Cardinals continue to impress at Wrigley as they won their third straight game there. This time it was back-to-back home runs from Yadier Molina and Paul DeJong in the ninth off Craig Kimbrel to give them the win.
