The Chicago Cubs lost 4-3 to the Cardinals in 12 innings on Tuesday night. Justin Grimm walked two in the bottom of the 12th inning before Greg Garcia won the game when Grimm hit him with a pitch with the bases loaded. The Cubs tied the game at 3 with two outs in the ninth as Emilio Bonifacio drove in Junior Lake.

Jason Hammel (4-1, 2.45 ERA) will take the mound for the Cubs and will be opposed by Michael Wacha (2-3, 2.85 ERA) in game three of the four-game series Wednesday night.
