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.

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