The Cubs tied it in the 9th, but lost it in the 13th – as the Nationals beat Chicago 5 – 4.  The Cubs travel to San Diego today.

Cardinals beat the Braves 6 - 2

Conner Gillespie’s lead-off HR in the 12th inning lead the White Sox over the Royals 4 -3.

and… A month after acknowledging only that he made “mistakes,” Ryan Braun admitted taking performance-enhancing drugs during his NL MVP season of 2011. Last month Braun accepted a 65-game suspension resulting from Major League Baseball’s investigation of the now-closed Biogenesis of America anti-aging clinic, which was accused of providing banned substances to players.
