After that, the Cardinals took advantage of James Russell, Manny Corpas and Rafael Dolis to score a dozen runs. The last time the Cubs gave up 12 runs in an inning was on July 30th, 2010 against the Rockies.

Cubs GM Jed Hoyer also weighed in and said, "All the guys on your team sit there and look over their shoulder. I think everyone exhales after the Deadline for that reason. I think every player on that field has been part of some rumor at some point this year, even Starlin [Castro] for a while -- that rumor was out there, which was unfounded."
Tomorrow the Cubs and Cardinals will play the final game in the three-game series at 1:15pm CT in St. Louis. Travis Wood will start for the Cubs and try to earn his fifth win of the season. Here's to hoping the Cubs don't get swept by the redbirds.
