Holy cow! The Cubs trounced the Braves 13-2 at Turner Field on Sunday behind Jon Lester's quality start and 5 doubles and a HR from the offense! Lester's line: 7 IP, 0 ER, 7 K, 0 BB, 5 H.
J-Hey went 3-for-4 with 3 R, Rizzo was 3-for-6 with 3 RBI, and Baez was 2-for-5 with a 3-R HR. Lester drove in a run, and Ross & recent Cubs signing Chris Coghlan each had 2 RBI.
The first place Cubs head to Washington to start a three-game set on Monday before returning to the Friendly Confines to start a six-game homestand against NL Central rivals the Pirates & Cards.
