by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fowler went 3-for-5 with an RBI double, triple and run in Saturday's 10-4 loss to the Cardinals.

The leadoff man brought home Jorge Soler with a two-bagger in the second, his fourth RBI over his last five games. Fowler has also hit safely in four of those contests, with three multi-hit efforts. The 30-year-old is now slashing a solid .275/.388/.450 over 69 at-bats this season.

Cubs' Jason Hammel: Battered by Cardinals in Saturday loss
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hammel (15-10) gave up six earned runs on six hits and a walk over 2.1 innings in a 10-4 loss to the Cardinals on Saturday. He struck out two.

The veteran fell victim to a Cardinals team that's been dangerous against right-handers all season, with the majority of his problems coming in the first inning. Yadier Molina got the scoring started with a two-run double and the red-hot Randal Grichuk followed by driving in two on a single. Hammel also saw Stephen Piscotty take him deep with a solo shot in the second, while Grichuk came back to tag Mike Montgomery for a two-bagger in the third that drove in Jhonny Peralta, the final run that went on Hammel's ledger. The 34-year-old has endured an up-and-down September, giving up 20 earned runs over 20.2 innings and dropping three of four decisions in the process. He'll look to build some positive momentum for the postseason when he takes on the Reds next Friday.

Cubs' Pedro Strop: Hopes to make three or four more appearances
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Strop, who pitched a scoreless inning in his return from the DL on Friday, hopes to make three or four appearances before the postseason, Carrie Muskat of MLB.com reports.

Strop should be a valuable part of the Cubs' bullpen in the postseason, likely covering the seventh or eighth inning in high-leverage situations. He might vulture a save in the last week of the regular season with the team resting many regulars.
