Holy cow! The Cubs beat the Reds 9-5 Thursday to sweep the series. Jon Lester tossed another quality start, Koji Uehara picked up his first save of the season, and the North Siders' offense continued to tear it up at Wrigley.

Baez went 3-for-4 with five RBI, including a grand slam; KB hit his eighth homer of the season; and Ian Happ, making the most of his MLB debut, & Ben Zobrist each went 2-for-4.

The Brewers head to the Friendly Confines Friday to kick off a three-game series. First pitch is at 1:20 p.m. CT, and Kerry Wood will be filling in for JD on the Cubs' TV broadcast (hat tip to Chris for the info!).

Go Cubs go!
