Cubs win! A five-run first inning was all it took, as the Cubs beat the Reds 9-2. Six different Cubs tallied RBIs, with Heyward and Bryant knocking in two apiece including Bryant's first HR of 2016.
John Lackey picked up the win, and Cahill, Richard, and Ramirez combined for 2 1/3 innings of scoreless ball.
The first place Cubs have tied their franchise record of a 7-1 start! Cincinnati returns to the Friendly Confines for the final game of the set tomorrow night.
