Kim earns 5th straight win on birthday, Cards beat Cubs 3-2

Kwang Hyun-Kim earned his fifth consecutive win on his 34th birthday and the St. Louis Cardinals defeated the Chicago Cubs 3-2 Thursday night. Nolan Arenado and Dylan Carlson homered as the Cardinals improved to a game over .500 at 49-48.
