ST. LOUIS | Lance Lynn struck out a career-high 12 to stay tied for the major league lead in wins and Carlos Beltran hit his NL-best 19th home run Wednesday night, sending the St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory over the White Sox that ended Chicago's eight-game road winning streak.

CHICAGO | As Cubs fans, you can't adequately count the decades of teeth-gnashing after your heroes got a man to third with none out, and the batter(s) who followed him hit the first pitch right to the third baseman, struck out or popped up to the infield.
Ken "Hawk" Harrelson has earned his share of baseball titles over the years, but for him, the greatest compliment is calling him "a homer."
