Reeling Cubs try to avoid sweep at Cardinals' hands

This is not what the Chicago Cubs had in mind.

Chicago (82-73) had a chance to push for a division title with a strong series against the St. Louis Cardinals (88-67) this weekend. Instead, the Cubs have lost the first three games of the series and five straight games overall to put their season in jeopardy.

Now, the Cubs will try to stave off a sweep when they host the Cardinals on Sunday afternoon in their home finale.
