Cole Hamels went seven shutout innings to lower his Cubs ERA to 0.72 as he and the other Cubs pitchers were helped by seven double plays that the defense turned.  Kyle Schwarber hit his 21st HR to give the Cubs the only run they'd need as they move 21 games over .500.  Tyler Chatwood will face off against Joe Musgrove at 6:05 CST as he takes Mike Montgomery's spot in the rotation as Monty went to the DL with shoulder inflammation.
