"I was a little confused and shocked to what the call was. I said, 'What did we have on that?' He said, 'I had it for a strike.'"

The strike stopped the Cubs' bid for a comeback, with the game ending in a 6-2 loss.

“If we want to change something like that, we’re going to have an electronic strike zone because human beings are going to make mistakes,” Zobrist said. “Tough situation for that to happen, but he’s probably going to look at it and not be too happy with himself.

“That’s something the league is going to have to look at, when you start ending games and games turn on one pitch like that. It’s an unfortunate situation, and now that we have the technology, we should probably get it right.”

With the loss, the Cardinals are now tied with the Cubs for first place in the NL Central division.
