Molina gave the Cardinals a 3-1 lead with a two-run shot in the sixth inning off of Cubs' starter Edwin Jackson.

The St. Louis catcher is 6 for 11 in his last three-games against the Cubs and leads the majors in batting average at three sixty-five.

Chicago is 29-41 on the year, 2-3 against the Cardinals, and wrap up a seven-game road swing in St. Louis tonight.

The Cardinals are 46-26, lead the NL Central by two and-a-half games, and conclude their four-game series against the Cubs tonight.
