After Kris Bryant was hit in the helmet/face in the top of the first the Cubs answered with four straight singles to take a three run lead.  Albert Almora Jr had three highlight reel catches to back Jose' Quintana who went 5 and a third.  He also notched the 1000th strike out of his career becoming the first Colombian pitcher to reach that mark.  Javy Baez stayed hot driving in 3 with a homer and a double and will likely be the player of the week in the National League.  Brandon Morrow with his 4th save in four chances closed the door as the Cubs took the series.  The Cubs will be off Monday before returning to Cleveland for the first time since Game 7 of the World Series in 2016.
