29

The Cubs beat the Reds 9-0 Sunday behind a rejuvenated offense as Daniel Murphy 2-3 with a walk, Rizzo had a couple doubles, Jason Heyward was 4-4 for the fourth time this season and Bote and Schwarber had big time HR's.  Cubs are now 5-0 since Murphy joined the lineup and the Cubs starters have posted a 1.67 ERA over the last 10 games as the Cubs get a home four game sweep of the Reds for the first time since 1945.  Speaking of the Cubs starters Kyle Hendricks threw 7 shutout innings giving up just two hits while walking one and striking out five on 98 pitches.  The Mets come to town tomorrow as Jon Lester will square off against Noah Syndergaard.
