In the National League, the St. Louis Cardinals overcame three home runs by Chicago's Moises Alou to beat the host Cubs, 11-8.

Sammy Sosa also homered in a losing cause, giving the Cubs' slugger his 511th career homer, which ties him with Mel Ott for 16th place on the career home run list.

Arizona got a two-run single from Quinton McCracken in the top of the 10th inning to give the Diamondbacks a 3-1 victory over Los Angeles, handing the Dodgers their season-high seventh straight loss.
