Holy cow! The first place Cubs came back to beat the Brewers 6-5 and take the three-game series on Sunday. In his Cubs debut, Joe Nathan picked up the win with a scoreless relief inning, and the Cubs put up a 5 spot in the 7th to take the lead for good.

With "You Go, We Go" getting a day off, Tommy LaStella channeled his inner Dexter (Fowler, that is), leading off and reaching base in 4 of 4 plate appearances with an RBI and a run scored. Zobrist knocked in two more and Rizzo had a bases-clearing double to tally 3 more RBI.

The Cubs confirmed a trade with the Yankees that will bring fireman Aroldis Chapman to Chicago just in time for the Crosstown Cup four-game, home-and-home series with the White Sox that starts Monday.

Let's go!
