Holy cow! The Cubs shut out the Brewers on Tuesday 3-0 behind a quality start from Jose Quintana (6.2 IP, 7 K, 0 ER), 2.1 perfect innings of relief, some offensive efficiency (3 runs on 3 hits), and some stellar defense.

All three Chicago runs scored with Victor Caratini at bat:  a throwing error, an RBI single, and an RBI double. The only other Cub hit was from Javier Baez, who scored on Caratini's single. Addison Russell made a spectacular play to rob Ryan Braun of a base hit for the second out in the ninth, and Pedro "Hats Left" Strop struck out Schoop to end the game. That's Cub.

The rubber game of the series is Wednesday night at the Friendly Confines. 144 regular season games down, 18 to go.

Go Cubs go!
