CHICAGO -- With the game on the line and a right-handed batter at the plate, there are few St. Vic Beasley Jr Jersey . Louis Cardinals pitchers that manager Mike Matheny would rather have on the mound than Pat Neshek. Matheny issued an intentional walk to set up that precise matchup Tuesday night in the 10th inning, but this time the percentages didnt pay off. Welington Castillo homered and drove in the winning run with a 10th-inning single off Neshek, giving the Chicago Cubs a 4-3 victory over the Cardinals that tightened the NL Central race. "It was amazing to get the homer and the walk-off base hit," Castillo said. "I cannot ask more than that." St. Louis lead was reduced to 1 1/2 games over second-place Pittsburgh, which clinched a playoff berth by beating Atlanta. With four games to play, the Cardinals, who secured a post-season spot last weekend, still have a magic number of four to wrap up their second consecutive division crown. Castillo finished 2 for 5 with three RBIs, and Matt Szczur also homered for the Cubs. Zac Rosscup (1-0) pitched a scoreless inning for his first major league win. Matt Holliday hit a two-run homer for St. Louis. Right-handed hitters were just 24 of 140 against Neshek (7-2) before Tuesday for a batting average of .171. "Hes done such a great job for us all season," Matheny said. With the score tied at 3, Anthony Rizzo hit a one-out double off the base of the wall in right-centre and advanced to third on a groundout by rookie Jorge Soler. Luis Valbuena was intentionally walked to get to Castillo, who drove the ball into the right-centre gap to easily score Rizzo. "Rizzo got a hold of one pretty well and we had an opportunity to get around a left-handed batter and put a righty in front of him, but Castillo just ended up putting together a good at-bat," Matheny said. Neshek is so effective against right-handed hitters in part because his unusual motion often gets them off balance. Castillo, however, hung in like few others have. "I was aggressive, looking for something over home plate that I can drive," he said. "He threw me a slider over home plate. I was on top of that. I was lucky to hit it." Both starters had pitched well of late, but neither was able to get through the sixth inning this time. St. Louis right-hander Shelby Miller entered 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in four September starts, but lasted just 4 1-3 innings, allowing three runs and five hits. Miller left trailing 3-0 and Cubs starter Kyle Hendricks appeared in control through five innings, but he managed to retire just one batter in the sixth and left with the score tied. Hendricks allowed three runs and five hits in 5 1-3 innings. The Cubs grabbed a 2-0 lead in the second when Valbuena led off with a walk and Castillo followed with a two-run drive deep into the left-field bleachers. The lead grew to 3-0 in the fifth when Szczur led off with a solo homer that just made the first row of bleachers in left-centre. The Cardinals got on the board in the sixth with an RBI groundout by Jon Jay to make it 3-1. Hendricks still seemed in control, but he left a 2-2 pitch out over the plate to the next batter, and Holliday deposited it into the left-field bleachers to tie the score. The Cardinals wasted opportunities to take the lead after that. Theyll try to regroup and move closer to that division title. "Pittsburghs playing good right now," Miller said. "They have a great team over there and theyve won two games against Atlanta. No doubt, that teams not going to give up, and neither are we." TRAINERS ROOM Cardinals: Matheny said RHP Michael Wacha is expected to make his next start Friday in Arizona. Wacha, who missed three months earlier in the season with a stress reaction in his right shoulder, was down just briefly two weeks ago before making a start against the Reds on Saturday. Cubs: SS Starlin Castro will likely miss the remainder of the season, manager Rick Renteria said. Castro injured his left ankle against Milwaukee on Sept. 2. UP NEXT The finale of the three-game series is Wednesday night. Cardinals RHP John Lackey (14-9, 3.86 ERA) faces Cubs RHP Jake Arrieta (9-5, 2.65), who pitched a one-hitter in his last start against Cincinnati. Robert Alford Jersey .

Custom Atlanta Falcons Jerseys . -- The Windsor Spitfires were left with just one goaltender Tuesday after having their starter walk out on them midway through Game 3 of their Ontario Hockey League playoff matchup with the London Knights. http://www.thefaclonsshoponline.com/Youth-Jake-Matthews-Falcons-Jersey/ . Groves signed with Cleveland as an unrestricted free agent last year after a season with Arizona. He was in the linebacker rotation and had a sack in the season opener against Miami.An eventful Game 3 ended with Montreals first victory of the Eastern Conference finals. The Canadiens hope to even the series Sunday when they visit the New York Rangers for Game 4 at Madison Square Garden. Listen to all-day coverage and the game on TSN Radio 690 and TSN.ca/Montreal.

After losing the first two tests of this best-of-seven series on home ice, the Habs rebounded with Thursdays 3-2 overtime victory in New York City to cut the series deficit to 2-1. Alex Galchenyuk supplied the winner just 72 seconds into the extra session, capping a fierce battle that eventually led to two players being suspended by the league. This playoff battle -- the first between Montreal and New York since 1996 -- seemed to be lacking in bad blood at the start but that has changed over the course of three meetings. It began with the injury in Game 1 to Montreals Carey Price, who was lost for the series after a collision with New Yorks Chris Kreider, and the animosity reached new levels on Thursday. Former Ranger Brandon Prust kicked off the Game 3 hostilities with a late, blind side check on New York forward Derek Stepan just 2:45 into the opening period. No penalty was called for the hit, which resulted in a broken jaw for Stepan, but Prust was hit with a two-game suspension on Friday. Stepan, meanwhile, is out for Game 4 after having surgery Friday to repair his broken jaw. However, Derick Brassard, who sat out Games 2 and 3 with an upper- body injury sustained on a hit from Montreals Mike Weaver in the opener, is ready to return and will replace Stepan in the lineup tonight. The bigger suspension went to New Yorks Daniel Carcillo for abuse of an official. Carcillo was whistled for charging Prust at 5:51 of the first, setting off a fight between New Yorks Derek Dorsett and the former Ranger. While the fight was going on, Carcillo became physical with an official and was hit with a game misconduct. On Friday, the NHL handed down a 10-game suspension to Carcillo, who wont be eligible to return this postseason unless the Rangers stretch the Eastern Conference finals to seven games and then advance to a deciding Game 7 in the Stanley Cup Finals. Carcillo has appealed the suspension. While the rough stuff grabbed most of the headlines after Game 3, the on-ice battle was memorable as well. Montreal went ahead 2--1 on a goal by Danny Briere with 3:02 left in the third, but Kreider scored with just 28. Duke Riley Jersey. 1 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game to OT. The Canadiens then wasted no time in overtime, as Tomas Plekanec skated in through the middle and threw the puck on net from the left circle. Henrik Lundqvist made a left-pad save on the shot, but the rebound hit off a crashing Galchenyuk in front of the net and went in to end the game. Lundqvist, who was pulled in favor of the extra attacker on Kreiders game- tying goal, turned away 21 shots on Thursday, but he was outdueled by Canadiens netminder Dustin Tokarski. Making just his second playoff start in place of Price, Tokarski shined in Game 3 as he stopped 35 shots to get his first postseason win. "Hes a battler and the most important thing is hes a winner," said Montreal coach Michel Therrien. "You have to give a lot of credit to the Rangers, they came out strong. We weathered the storm and played with more confidence as the game went on. But without Tokarski, we wouldnt have won that game." Andrei Markov also scored for Montreal, which is hoping to get to the Stanley Cup finals for the first time since defeating Los Angeles in 1993. That also marked the last time a club from Canada lifted the Cup. Carl Hagelin joined Kreider as the goal-scorers for the Rangers, who were last in the Cup finals one year after the Canadiens, also taking home the chalice in a seven-game series against Vancouver in 1994. The Rangers hope to put Game 3 behind them on Sunday, as they shoot for a 3-1 lead in the series. New York outshot the Canadiens by a 37-25 margin on Thursday, so there are some positives to draw from the clubs first setback since falling behind three games to one against Pittsburgh in the conference semis. "We played really well, but we just have to forget about it, move on, and get ready for the next one," Lundqvist said. Game 5 is scheduled for Tuesday in Montreal. Depending on the outcome of Sundays clash, the next meeting will either offer a chance for New York to clinch a berth in the Cup Finals or give the Habs an opportunity to take the series lead. This is the first postseason encounter between these Original Six rivals since the opening round of the 1996 playoffs when New York won in six games. The clubs have split 14 previous playoff series, but the Rangers had won six straight postseason games against Montreal before Thursdays loss.
