Cardinals 6, Cubs 0 (7/6/15)

OSS: I’m going to need more beer before this series is over. Three up 1. Jon Lester took a no-hitter into the seventh inning, though things felt like they were already falling apart in the previous inning. Further grumbling later in this post, but I don’t want to take away from what was a great performance from Lester. He even got his first major league hit, which was literally...
