Rapid Reaction: Cubs 5, Cardinals 4 (10)

CHICAGO -- Here’s a quick look at the Cubs' 5-4 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday.

How it happened: Tyler Colvin completed the Cubs' comeback when he drove home Geovany Soto with the winning run on a base hit up the middle in the 10th inning. Down 4-3 in the eighth, the Cubs tied the game on Soto’s RBI double to left, which scored pinch-hitter Carlos Pena. After falling behind 3-0 in the second, the Cubs chipped away the rest of the afternoon with an Aramis Ramirez RBI single to left in the third and a Darwin Barney home run in the fifth -- just his second homer of the season, with the other coming on April 25. Barney and pinch-hitter Blake DeWitt had consecutive triples in the sixth to bring the Cubs to within one. Starter Randy Wells lasted seven innings for the second time this season but also allowed four earned runs, including two homers, and threw two wild pitches.

Outside the box: Right-hander Andrew Cashner threw his third session to live hitting on Friday. He threw 30 pitches to live hitters and is expected to throw a side session on Sunday before accepting a minor league assignment to continue his rehab.

Next: Matt Garza (5-9, 3.80) takes on the Cardinals’ Edwin Jackson (2-1, 4.62) at 3:10 p.m. Saturday.
