The Chicago Cubs were able to win today on a walk off walk taken by rookie David Bote in the 10th inning with the bases loaded.  Jon Lester went 6 and a third innings giving up 4 runs all earned but Jon also found out he'll be going to his 5th All Star game in DC.  Addison Russell had 3 RBI's and Javy Baez had 2.  The latter will be joining Jon Lester and Willson Contreras as the two infielders also made the All Star team, their first career selections.  Brandon Morrow blew the save by allowing a solo HR to Adam Duvall, only his 2nd blown save of the year.  The Cubs went 7-1 on the homestand and will now travel out west to face the San Francisco Giants.  Kyle Hendricks will face off against Andrew Suarez at 9:15 CST.
