Cutting the Cardinals/Pirates game.
Albert Pujols hit his 40th and 41st homeruns and Matt Holliday drove in his 100th run of the season. Rookie Daniel Descalso collected 4 hits in his second Major League start.
This all added up to a 9-2 Cardinals' victory.
3:08 was the time of this contest as 13 pitchers were used during the game.
The flight from Pittsburgh to Chicago was a very comfortable 1 hour and 7 minutes.
The bus ride from O'hare to the downtown Ritz Carlton was a very uncomfortable 1 hour and 20 minutes.
