Holy cow! The first place, defending World Series champion Chicago Cubs offense continued its tear on Saturday as the North Siders beat the Braves in a slugfest at Wrigley, 14-12, for their sixth straight win.

Jon Lester returned from his DL stint and looked a bit rusty, giving up 8 H and 4 ER (including three homers) in 5 IP, but the offense picked him up. Rene Rivera hit a grand slam to put the Cubs on the board in the 2nd inning. Rizzo drove in three, and Almora, Heyward, and Baez each drove in two. Heyward reached in 4 of 5 plate appearances. That's Cub.

The Cubs go for the series sweep at home on Sunday before they head to Pittsburgh for a four-game set starting Monday. Follow CMN on Twitter!
