The World Series champion Cubs go again after their first win as former Cy Young Award victor Jake Arrieta starts in St. Louis against Adam Wainwright.

The St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs will have to wait another day to finish their season-opening series.

The Cardinals fell to the Cubs two runs to one, the lone Cardinals run having been scored by Stephen Piscotty in seemingly the most brutal way possible. Piscotty's Tuesday night was like a slapstick comedy routine. He took second on a wild pitch, and was hit by the throw to second by Contreras.

The Cubs have had trouble stringing together hits in the same inning in this series, managing just five runs.

Lynn missed past year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in November 2015, although he did make three rehab starts in the minors in August before ending his stint to concentrate on finishing his recovery.

The space blanket was one of four covers created to guard the station from micrometeoroids, and also for thermal protection. This was the 199th EVA in station history, the fourth so far this year, the sixth for Kimbrough and the eighth for Whitson.

Piscotty departed in the fifth inning with a head contusion, and the team says he will be evaluated again Wednesday.

Cardinals" manager Mike Matheny would challenge the play-as he should-but it was a "bang-bang' play that the umpires had no evidence to overturn the call on the field. "This team this year is special, and I think everyone got a glimpse of that last night". But their excellent defense enabled them to make two fourth-inning runs Tuesday night stand up for a win. First, he was plunked on the arm by a pitch from Jake Arrieta. The Cardinals are 0-4 in Lynns last 4 starts vs. Cubs and the under is 5-1-1 in the last 7 meetings. "Obviously, doing it against our (National League) Central rival, the Cubs, who won it a year ago, that adds to it". "Not too big of a deal", he said.

Randal Grichuk's RBI single in the ninth inning gave the Cardinals the victory in the roller-coaster contest after Chicago's Willson Contreras tied the game with a three-run blast in the top of the frame.

Piscotty, 26, was drafted by the Cardinals in the supplemental first round (36th player overall) of the 2012 First Year Player Draft out of Stanford University.

Wednesday's Cubs-Cardinals game at Busch Stadium has been postponed due to the threat of severe weather.
