Jorge Soler's two home runs led the Cubs to a 7-2 victory over the Cardinals, spoiling Yadier Molina's return from the disabled list. Soler hit a game-tying solo shot in the seventh and a mammoth two-run blast in the four-run eighth.

Kyle Hendricks allowed two first-inning runs before throwing five shutout innings in a no-decision. He finished August 4-0. Neil Ramirez pitched one scoreless inning to notch the victory. Because of wild pitch, Justin Grimm notched four strikeouts in the ninth.
