Great comeback win tonight for the Cubs in Phoenix! The North Siders came back from deficits of 3-0, 4-2, and 6-4 to crush the D-backs 14-6.

Lackey picked up his first career win in blue pinstripes despite giving up 6 ER in 6 IP.  Strop, Wood, and Rondon combined for three scoreless innings of relief.

On the offensive side, Dexter "You Go, We Go" Fowler continued his hot start, reaching base in 4 of his 6 plate appearances. Rizzo had a huge night with a 3-R HR and 6 RBIs for the game.

Scarily, Kyle Schwarber was carted off the field after a collision with Fowler. Preliminary X-rays were negative, and the Cubs reported that Schwarb had a left ankle sprain. MRI to follow.

The four-game series continues Friday in Phoenix. Go Cubs!
