HOLY COW! The Cubs came back Monday night (actually Tuesday morning) to beat the Bucs in 13 innings at Wrigley, 8-7! Soler & Contreras each homered and the bullpen combined for 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball to pick Arrieta up after a rough start (6.1 IP, 6 ER).

It was a wild game: the Cubs led 3-0 early, trailed 6-3 in the 8th, tied it 6-6 in the bottom of the 9th, and trailed 7-6 in the bottom of the 13th before scoring two to win. Four consecutive Cubs reached base before Miggy drove in KB to tally the winning run.

The MLB-best Cubs continue the homestand Tuesday with game two of the three-game series against Pittsburgh.

Let's go!
