UNDATED (AP) - The St. Louis Cardinals were the first major league team to clinch a playoff berth when the San Francisco Giants absorbed a 6-0 loss to Arizona. But the Cardinals' lead in the NL Central dropped to four games over Pittsburgh with the Redbirds' 5-4 loss to the Cubs in Chicago and the Pirates' 3-2 win over the Dodgers. Jorge Soler  and Kris Bryant hit back-to-back homers as the Cubs picked up their fifth straight win.
