Cubs win! John Lackey took it to his former team, striking out 11 in 7 IP and adding an RBI single as the first place Cubs beat the Cards 5-0 in St. Louis.

Dexter "You Go, We Go" Fowler went 2-for-5 with a HR and Kris Bryant went 2-for-4 with an RBI. Wood, Strop, and Cahill kept the shutout intact by combining to pitch scoreless 8th & 9th innings.

The Cubs bring the best record in MLB back to Busch Stadium Tuesday night for game two of the three-game set.

Let's go!
