The FIRST PLACE Cubs complete the sweep of the Padres with a 7-4 victory in San Diego. They end the first half of the season 17 games over 500 and 2.5 games above the  Brewers.

Every starter in the lineup either scored a run or earned an RBI in this final game of a winning West Coast road trip!

Lester gets his 12th win. Javy gets his 72nd RBI as he heads to DC for the HR Derby. Last year he made a season high 75 RBIs... Yes, you read that right...

All-Star Break Comparisons

Since 2015, the Cubs have made it to at least the NLCS every year, so let's take a look at the each of the past four years at the break.

2015 - 83
2016 - 67
2017 - 79
2018 - 65

2015 - 7
2016 - 19
2017 - -2 (below 500)
2018 - 17

In short... It's looking really good on the North Side!
