A great night at Wrigley! Wood tosses a quality start, Fowler goes 3-for-4 with 2 RBI, Castro goes 3-for-5, Junior Lake goes 2-for-5 in his return to Wrigley, and the Cubs beat the Pirates 6-2.  Cards beat the Phils, so the Cubs remain 1 GB.

Cubs shutout the Pirates behind 8 shutout innings,4 hits from Hammel,  2 for 3 with 2 RBI from Rizzo and 2 RBI from Bryant. Cards lose at home to the lowly Phillies. Now if only the Bulls would win.

Another comeback win for the Cubs in Pittsburgh -- this time in dramatic fashion! A 3-run 9th put the Cubs over the top, 9-8.  Castro picked up 4 RBI, Bryant added 2 more, and Addison Russell made his Cubs debut.  And the Cards fell to the Nats in extras -- great day to be a Cubs fan!

Cubs are above. 500. The first time in 2 years. Porta potties, pissed off rooftops and jumbotron. Oh my. Maybe this is the year.

Rfbleachers, thanks for the kick.
