Holy cow! Cubs rocked the Rockies 9-2 at Coors Field on Saturday behind KB's 4 RBI night (including a 3-run homer) and Mike Montgomery's fine spot start: 4.1 IP, 5 K, 1 H, 1 ER.

Trevor Cahill was solid in relief (4.2 IP, 1 ER), and every position player in the first place Cubs' starting lineup had at least one hit. Dexter "You Go, We Go" Fowler reached base in 3 of 4 plate appearances and scored twice. Zobrist and Montero each went 3-for-5 : Zo with a HR, 3 R, and 2 RBI, and Miggy with 3 RBI.

The MLB-best Cubs dropped the series finale Sunday despite Addy's 2 HR day and head to Petco on Monday to start a three-game set against the Friars.

Let's go!
