All nine Cubs hitters had at least one hit and Kyle Hendricks the Professor was stellar over 7 and 2/3 innings giving up four hits and a run while striking out five and walking none.  The Cubs offense struck early putting up a three run spot in the first and kept adding on with one in the second and two in the third.

Ben Zobrist was 3-6 to bring his batting average to .314 on the year, Anthony Rizzo had a first inning RBI double, his 96th RBI on the season and Javy Baez had a double, his 81st extra base hit of the season, the most by a Cub since Derek Lee in 2005.  Kyle Schwarber also hit his 26th HR of the year and first off a LHP this season.

With the 6-1 win against the White Sox they clinch the season series 4-2 and will now play their last seven games at home at Wrigley field as the Pirates will come to town next for four.  Tomorrow Cole Hamels will face off against Jameson Tallion at 7:05 CST.
