    reminded his Chicago Cubs teammates that theyve now won games in their last
    at-bat on a wild pitch, a squeeze bunt and a bases-loaded walk.Its been that
    kind of season.Rizzo drew a walk from Zach Duke with two outs in the 11th inning
    and the Cubs beat the St. Louis Cardinals 4-3 on Thursday night for their 10th
    consecutive win.Its one of those things where its going our way, Rizzo said. We
    just want it to keep going our way.Not only did the Cubs open a 13-game lead
    over the second-place Cardinals in the NL Central, St. Louis lost slugger Matt
    Holliday to a broken right thumb after he was hit by a pitch in the 10th
    inning.Holliday wasnt sure if hell miss the rest of the season. Hes to see a
    hand specialist Friday.For sure its super disappointing but its part of sport
    unfortunately, Holliday said.Pinch-hitters Willson Contreras and Jorge Soler led
    off with singles against the lefty Duke (2-1) and Dexter Fowler walked to load
    the bases with one out. Kris Bryant struck out before Rizzo took a 3-1 pitch
    inside to give the Cubs their longest winning streak since getting 12 straight
    in 2001.Crazy stuff, manager Joe Maddon said. Entertaining? Yes.Mike Montgomery
    (4-5) allowed a single and two walks to load the bases in the 11th before
    striking out Matt Carpenter to end the threat. Montgomery, who won his first
    game with Chicago after being acquired from Seattle last month, also hit
    Holliday with a 94 mph fastball on a 1-1 count with nobody on and two out an
    inning earlier.I definitely feel for him, Montgomery said. It wasnt on purpose.
    Its just one of those pitches thats a big part of the game, going inside, and it
    just got away.Randal Grichuk, called up from the minors before the game, tied it
    for St. Louis with a pinch-hit solo home run off Travis Wood in the seventh.
    Brandon Moss also homered for St. Louis.Chris Coghlan had a two-run single and
    David Ross an RBI bunt single in the sixth for the Cubs.Both managers used their
    closers in the ninth. Chicagos Aroldis Chapman needed three pitches to get two
    liners to third and a groundout, while Seung Hwan Oh struck out the side for St.
    Louis. Oh then worked out of a 10th-inning jam.The Cubs wasted three good
    opportunities to score before capitalizing in odd fashion, as has been their
    signature.After Coghlans two-out two-run single off Carlos Martinez tied it at
    2, the 39-year-old Ross bunted an 0-1 curveball between the mound and third
    base. Martinez elected to throw to first, and it drew Carpenter off the bag as
    Jason Heyward scored to put Chicago ahead.Coghlan also teamed with Addison
    Russell to throw out Carpenter at the plate from left field on Stephen Piscottys
    double to end the seventh.Cubs lefty Jon Lester allowed two runs and five hits
    with six strikeouts in six innings but lost a chance at his 13th win when
    Grichuk sent a 1-0 cutter into the left-field bleachers.Moss hit his first homer
    off a lefty this season in the sixth to put the Cardinals up 2-0. Yadier Molina
    added three hits, including an RBI single in the first to extend his on-base
    streak to 24 games.Martinez allowed three runs and seven hits over six innings.
    He hurt himself when he cut off a throw home that seemingly had a chance to get
    Rizzo on Chicagos second run.The Cubs would have turned to starting pitcher John
    Lackey if the game had gone to the 12th. He was also in the bullpen when Lester
    beat Seattle with a 12th-inning squeeze bunt on July 31 that started the winning
    streak.Its just a sign of a good team, Lester said. The close game we grind
    out.TRAINERS ROOMCardinals: A day after being scratched, 1B Matt Adams
    (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list. Grichuk was recalled from
    Triple-A Memphis.Cubs: Pedro Strop (knee surgery) will be out four to six weeks
    and Hector Rondon (triceps) was unavailable. Rondon played catch and is
    scheduled for a bullpen session Friday.UP NEXTCubs RHP Jake Arrieta (13-5, 2.59
    ERA) faces RHP Adam Wainwright (9-6, 4.34) on Friday afternoon.

    national champion Villanova Wildcats opened the 2016-17 season with six games in
    13 days.It was a grueling stretch for the No. 2-ranked team.But they came away
    with six victories, including their most recent 63-47 win over the College of
    Charleston last Wednesday. After the win, the victorious Wildcats looked a bit
    weary.A much-needed break was waiting and theyll now be rested and ready when
    they open the Big Five portion of their schedule Tuesday night versus city rival
    Penn (7 p.m. ET) at the Palestra.This break comes at a good time for us,
    Villanova head coach Jay Wright said. It was good for us to experience this. We
    got a lot of our offense and defense in knowing that we would face this stretch
    where we wouldnt get a lot of practice in. I think it paid off for us. We were
    prepared but, on the other hand, I dont know if we were mentally prepared for
    this many games back-to-back. We had a couple of them -- Western Michigan, maybe
    this one -- where we didnt have great energy.Preseason player-of-the-year
    candidate Josh Hart led the way against the Cougars with 13 points and 11
    rebounds. Hart has been a team leader and a budding star thus far this season.We
    need to learn to bring it every night, Wright said. That was the key to Ryan
    (Arcidiacono) and Daniel (Ochefu) last year. They had a mature approach to every
    game. Their approach was like that of a 15-year NBA veteran -- they came to work
    every day.dddddddddddd Josh is really getting good at that. But our teams got to
    get good at that.The Quakers (2-2) opened their season with four consecutive
    road games -- wins at Robert Morris and Central Connecticut State and a loss at
    Miami and, most recently, a two-point loss at Navy last Wednesday.Junior Caleb
    Wood led Penn in scoring for the second game in a row with 15 points at
    Navy.Sophomore Jackson Donahue knocked down four treys, which are as many as he
    hit in the Quakers first three games combined. Donahue added six assists for a
    career high.But Penn made just four -- and attempted six -- free throws with
    none coming in the second half.Now the Quakers get a chance to come back home
    with a difficult matchup in Villanova. Its a daunting task for sure.It isnt easy
    to play on the road in college basketball, and weve started the season with four
    straight away from home, Penn head coach Steve Donahue told the Daily
    Pennsylvanian after the loss at Navy. Winning this game wouldve been a great
    step for us, but I think regardless of the result we showed some of the growth
    this team has had in the past couple weeks. Its just about overcoming some of
    the things we didnt do well today and getting ready for a tough game against
    Villanova. ' ' '
