Stuck out! Ball clings to Molina, Cubs rally past Cardinals

Not so sticky: MLB says no violation in Molina stuck ball

Szczur, pinch-hitting for pitcher John Lackey, swung and missed at strike three from Brett Cecil, but the ball hit the ground before reaching Molina, so the outfielder took off for first base. "I'd never seen that before". It was definitely Velcro-d to his chest. That's because since he dropped the strikeout pitch, it allowed Szczur to get on base since he couldn't throw it to first in time.

Matt Carpenter, 1B: After hitting.192 during exhibition play, he is hitting just.182 (2 for 11) in the real games. "That's all I can tell you".

It was a 180-degree turn for Schwarber, who at this time past year saw his season end with ligament tears in his knee while chasing a fly ball in Arizona. The Gold Glove catcher could only smile and fans in the sellout crowd roared.

"I don't know what happened there", said Manager Mike Matheny afterwards. I don't know if you put liquid nails on the ball and make that happen.

Schwarber - an emergency catcher who might have to wear a brace on his left leg for the rest of his career - offered this theory: "Catchers like to put pine tar on their leg guard for extra stick to throw the ball to second base, things like that, get feeling".

Molina was the victim of one of these weird bloopers recently.

"That play changed everything, " he said.

Once Szczur reached on what was scored as a wild pitch, the Cardinals lost their grip on this game. The Cubs capitalized when a walk set up Kyle Schwarber's go-ahead home run.

Jay put the Cubs on the board with a two-out run-scoring single in the fifth, a batter after Lackey extended the inning with his second single of the day.

"And we all went insane", Schwarber said with a smile. You too, I'd think.

MARINERS 4, ASTROS 2 Jarrod Dyson hit a tiebreaking RBI single in the ninth inning and Jean Segura drove in a run later in the inning to lift Seattle over Houston.

Schwarber stepped to the plate with two men on and the Cubs trailing 4-2 when he launched a massive home run deep into the right field corner. "There will be a lot of firsts this year".

Chicago managed to maintain the lead throughout the rest of the game and took home the win. Cardinals RF Stephen Piscotty (head contusion) appeared Thursday as part of a double-switch in the sixth inning and went 0-for-2. Lackey managed to get through six innings decently enough. Triggs allowed an unearned run and four hits in 5 2/3 innings.

"It looked like he was having trouble with his command, and in spring training he was commanding the ball extremely well", Tigers manager Brad Ausmus said.
