But Westbrook and the St. Louis Cardinals at least have the fortune of facing a Chicago Cubs team in the throes of unprecedented offensive struggles at Wrigley Field on Friday.
Westbrook (7-7, 4...

Bottom of the 5th inning. First three batters of the inning reach for the Cardinals and Lance Lynn comes up to bat with no outs and Danny Descalso on first base.
