Chatwood, Cubs beat Cardinals 7-2 in doubleheader opener

CHICAGO (AP) Tyler Chatwood was in big trouble when Chicago pitching coach Jim Hickey and his whole infield visited him in the fifth inning. The bases were loaded in a tie game, but first baseman Anthony Rizzo assured Chatwood the Cubs were about to turn a 6-4-3 double play and then score some runs.

He was pretty close.

Chatwood got Paul DeJong to bounce right back to him for a 1-2-3 double play, a key moment in the Cubs' 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday in the opener of a day-night doubleheader.
