CHICAGO (AP) - Pinch hitter Reed Johnson drove in the go-ahead with a bunt single in the seventh inning and the Chicago Cubs got past the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday.
Johnson caught the Cardinals by surprise when he squared up on the first pitch with runners on first and third and two outs. His bunt fell perfectly between reliever Brian Fuentes and third baseman Matt Carpenter, allowing pinch-runner Tony Campana to score.
James Russell (3-0) earned the win in relief. Carlos Marmol pitched the ninth for his 13th save in 15 chances.
