Hey hey! The Cubs' bats came to life in Milwaukee Thursday night, as they shut out the Brewers 8-0. This game had a little bit of everything for Cubs fans: a Heyward homer, El Mago on the basepads, and a Pippen-to-Jordanesque bounce pass from Lester to Bryant to throw out Ryan Braun attempting to steal third.

The bottom of the order took care of business: Willson Contreras went 3-for-4 with a run scored, Addison Russell went 2-for-5 with an RBI, and Javier Baez drove in two. Javy also scored from first on a ball that barely made it out of the infield, as the Brewers kicked it around and he kept the pedal to the metal all the way around the bases.

Starting pitcher Jon Lester looked sharp: 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 6 K. CJ Edwards struck out three in one inning of relief, and Cishek & Butler kept the shutout intact.

The series continues Friday at Miller Park. Go Cubs go!
