Holy cow! The first place Cubs completed a three-game sweep of the Cardinals with a 13-5 blowout on Sunday night at Wrigley Field. Jose Quintana threw another quality start (6 IP, 2 ER) while Zobrist, Bryant, Contreras, and Almora each had two-hit nights.

KB's 8th inning grand slam was the exclamation point that wrapped up a great weekend for the Cubs: Friday's complete game shutout for Hendricks, Saturday's comeback win punctuated by Davis's grand slam, and Sunday's no-doubter.

With the three victories, the Cubs leapfrogged St. Louis in the NL Central standings to take sole possession of first. Since their much-discussed 1-6 start to the 2019 season, the Cubs have won 18 of 24 games and hold the best record in the National League.

The Marlins come to town Monday to kick off a four-game set, and the homestand wraps up next weekend with three games against the third place Brewers. 31 games down, 131 to go.

Go Cubs go!
