Bourjos scores on throwing error in 10th as Cards beat Cubs

ST. LOUIS (AP) - Peter Bourjos scored the winning run from third on a throwing error by Mike Baxter in the 10th inning to lift the St. Louis Cardinals to a 3-2 win over the Chicago Cubs on Friday night.

Bourjos began the inning with a double off Justin Grimm (1-2). Kolten Wong followed with a single off the second base bag and Matt Carpenter was walked to load the bases. Jhonny Peralta then hit a routine grounder to second base, where right fielder Baxter was positioned with the bases loaded and no one out to give the Cubs five infielders. He had plenty of time, but threw wildly to the plate.

Kevin Siegrist (2-0) got the win as St. Louis won its fourth in a row overall and seventh straight at home, where the Cardinals are a major-league best 27-7.

Chicago lost its third in a row after a four-game winning streak.
