GUEST COLUMN 33 years? It's actually light years

A St. Louis Cardinals fan may be more likely to embrace the Chicago Cubs after a run-in with Addison Russell Monday night.

A shocked Cardinals fan had his plate on nachos destroyed by a Cubs player chasing a foul ball at Busch Stadium.

The Cubs and Cardinals are fierce, long-standing rivals.

With the nachos laying in the dirt and Russell's right arm covered in cheese, it wasn't a good time for anybody, especially since Russell didn't make the catch.

And of course Jon Lester was weird about it, because Jon Lester is weird.

The Chicago Cubs look for another victory after winning 10 of their last 12 games. Chicago can wrap up the division with a win Tuesday against the Cardinals or a loss by Milwaukee against Cincinnati.

The loss eliminated St. Louis from NL Central contention but did not have as negative of an impact on the Cardinals' wild-card hopes.

The crown jewel of the lineup is Intel's Core i7 8700K as well as the non-K Core i7 8700, featuring 6 cores and 12 threads. The new Z370 chipset also enables support for DDR4-2666 memory which was limited to DDR4-2400 in the case of Z270.

The Cubs are on a roll right now and Arrieta is back to looking like Arrieta, as he's allowed three or less runs in each of his last 10 starts.

Oh, and he caught a foul ball from Russell.

Kris Bryant hit a homer and added two singles for Chicago. That lead became 4-0 after Russell was doubled home by Jason Heyward.

"He got into some tough counts and had to hit more of the plate", St. Louis manager Mike Matheny said of Weaver.

Louis Cardinals meet Tuesday in Major League Baseball action at Busch Stadium on ESPN.

Cubs: Baez was back in the starting lineup. He is wearing a protective brace on his hand. He's 12-and-11 with a 3.63 ERA this season. He is 8-3 with a 2.03 ERA in 16 career starts against the Cardinals.

Carlos Martinez will be on the hill for the Cardinals, trying to improve on his 12-11 record and 3.63 ERA in 31 starts this season.
