Herrera's 8th inning sac fly helps Cardinals beat Cubs 5-3

ST. LOUIS (AP) Ivan Herrera hit a tiebreaking sacrifice fly in the eighth inning for his first career RBI and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Chicago Cubs 5-3 Saturday.

Juan Yepez lined a one-out double to the left field wall off Cubs reliever Mark Leiter Jr. (1-2) in the eighth, and pinch-runner Edmundo Sosa advanced to third on a wild pitch before scoring the go-ahead run on Herrera's fly.

"Sosa has been like my brother here," said Herrera, a rookie catcher vying to replace Yadier Molina when he retires. "He's helping me a lot trying to understand how to handle things. I know I did something different, and he said focus now because you're going to get an important at bat to help the team win."
