Molina, Cardinals hold off fading Cubs again, 2-1

CHICAGO (AP) Yadier Molina and the St. Louis Cardinals are taking charge of the NL Central by grinding out tough, ugly wins.

And bouncing back after absorbing some unpleasant blows.

Molina overcame a painful foul tip to get three of St. Louis' four hits, including a two-run single, and the Cardinals held off the fading Chicago Cubs 2-1 on Friday.
