Cards fall to Cubs; Magic number stands at 2

CHICAGO (AP) - Sam Fuld hit a go-ahead two-run single off Chris Carpenter, Casey Coleman pitched seven effective innings and the Chicago Cubs beat St. Louis 7-3 on Saturday, damaging the Cardinals' flickering playoff hopes.

Blake DeWitt and Aramis Ramirez had two hits and two RBIs apiece for Chicago, which trailed 3-0 early. Coleman allowed two earned runs and five hits.

Carpenter (15-9) lasted just four innings and reliever Blake Hawksworth was hit in the face by a Fuld liner in the fifth, Hawksworth was taken to a hospital.

Hawksworth had come in for starter Chris Carpenter in the fifth inning Saturday and was facing his second batter when Fuld's liner hit him in the face and Hawksworth fell to the ground.

Though he initially appeared only shaken up, he remained on the ground for several minutes while trainers from both teams tended to him. He stood up with the help of the trainers and walked off the field under his own power holding a compress to his head.

His condition was not immediately available.

He was given a standing ovation by the crowd. The Cubs were ahead 5-3 at the time.

St. Louis' loss dropped the magic number for Cincinnati to clinch the NL Central title to two. The Reds lost the second in a row to San Diego.
