A St. Louis Cardinals fan may be more likely to embrace the Chicago Cubs after a run-in with Addison Russell Monday night. In the act of going for the catch, he knocked an almost-full tray of nachos out of the hands of a Cardinals fan and onto the field, ruining a perfectly crafted snack. Chicago stopped his streak of winning seven consecutive starts, the longest by any Cardinals rookie since Ted Wilks in 1944.
Russell returned to the field with a plate of fresh nachos and hand-delivered them to the fan in the stands with a huge grin on his face.
That peeved Cubs starter Jon Lester, who started Monday's game. Chicago is 11-2 in its last 13 games and 19-8 in its last 27. The Cardinals are six back in the division and fighting to remain in the NL wild-card race, trailing Colorado by 2 1/2 games for the final playoff spot. The idle Brewers moved within 1 1/2 games of the Rockies. Javier Baez also added a three-run homer, his 23rd of the year.

But that doesn't begin to tell the story on a night that was headed so quickly and thoroughly the Cubs' way that when Kris Bryant hit a second-inning homer, stadium fireworks began to go off. Busch Stadium. Lester provided six innings of excellent pitching and gave up just one run while scattering five hits, including two walks and four strikeouts.
And two of those things are baseball and nachos.
The Cardinals erected metal barricades along the sidewalks surrounding Busch Stadium and Ballpark Village ahead of the final homestand because of protests following the acquittal of former St. Louis police officer Jason Stockley on September 15. Carlos Martinez will start for St. Louis. He is 8-3 with a 2.03 ERA in 16 career starts against the Cardinals.
