Holy cow! The Cubs crushed the Diamondbacks 9-1 in Phoenix on Tuesday night behind a quality start from Mike Montgomery (6 IP, 1 ER, 8 K) and some serious offensive efficiency -- 9 runs on their first 9 hits -- highlighted by two-run homers from Javy Baez and Daniel Murphy. El Mago's homer, his 33rd of the season, raised his NL-best RBI total to 107 and was immediately preceded by a 17-pitch at bat by Rizzo. That's Cub.

Meanwhile, the Brewers dropped their game to the Reds, lowering the CMN by two in one day!

The Cubs wrap up their series Wednesday against the Diamondbacks before enjoying a long-overdue off day Thursday in Chicago, where they'll head to the South Side for three games against the White Sox starting Friday.  151 regular season games down, 11 to go.

Go Cubs go!
