 CHICAGO (AP) -Jacque Jones hit a two-run homer and made an outstanding catch as the Chicago Cubs beat St. Louis 2-1 Friday, ending the Cardinals' five-game winning streak.
In the fifth inning, Jones helped keep the game scoreless when he ran full speed toward the center-field wall and made an over-the-shoulder grab on Brendan Ryan's long drive.
Albert Pujols' 26th home run put the Cardinals ahead in the sixth. In the bottom half, Ryan Theriot singled and Jones hit his fifth homer off Cardinals starter Braden Looper (10-10).
Rich Hill (7-7) earned his first win since July 16, allowing a run and three hits over seven innings.
St. Louis threatened against reliever Bob Howry in the eighth when David Eckstein singled, stole second and pinch-hitter Rick Ankiel walked. Pujols came up again, but he popped out to second baseman Mike Fontenot in shallow right to end the inning.
Ryan Dempster worked the ninth for his 18th save in 20 chances.
