Tough one for the Cubs in Philly Friday night despite great pitching and a HR from El Mago. Jose Quintana threw a quality start (6 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 1 BB, 7 K) and the bullpen threw 3.1 innings of one-run, two-hit ball. Unfortunately one of those hits was a walkoff long ball for the Phillies.

Baez and Murphy each had 2-for-5 nights, raising Javy's season average to .295 and Murphy's to .303. Quintana even went 2-for-2 at the plate, but the North Siders left 10 men on base, failing to capitalize on 9 hits and 5 walks.

Back at it on Saturday at Citizens Bank Park.  134 regular season games down, 28 to go...

Go Cubs go!
