Quintana, Cubs go for sweep of Cardinals

Brandon Morrow got the call Saturday night. It was a call nine days in the making.

The Chicago Cubs' closer had not pitched since June 7, due to his team either winning games in lopsided fashion or losing them. It was only natural that he started out a bit rusty against the Cardinals, allowing singles to Jairo Munoz and Kolten Wong to begin the bottom of the ninth.

But Morrow clicked into rhythm after that. Following an infield out, Morrow threw 99 mph fastballs by Matt Carpenter and Tommy Pham to end Chicago's 6-3 win over St. Louis and give him his 16th save in 17 chances.
