116

Hey hey! The first place Cubs won another series by knocking off the Nationals 6-5 on Sunday in DC. Anthony Rizzo homered and Kyle Schwarber knocked in two to set the pace for the North Siders.

Albert Almora had a 3-for-3 night with a walk and two runs scored, and Jason Heyward went 2-for-4 while also scoring twice. Steve Cishek threw 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball to pick up the save.

The Cubs return to Wrigley on Monday to start a four game homestand:  four with the Phillies and three with the Reds. 44 games down, 118 to go.

Go Cubs go!
