Holy cow! Cubs win! Cubs sweep! The Cubs demolished the Bucs 16-6 on Sunday, completing a three-game sweep during which they scored 47 runs. Sunday's offensive barrage was led by Kris Bryant's TWO home runs along with homers by Happ, Schwarber, and Lucroy.

The offense picked up Jose Quintana, who gave up five earned runs in 2 1/3 innings, and Anthony Rizzo, who left the game early with a sprained ankle. (X-rays were negative; an MRI is scheduled for Monday.) 

KB, Castellanos, and Schwarbs each went 3-for-5; Nick is now hitting .335 as a Cub, with 15 doubles and 15 homers in 41 games.

Meanwhile in the NL Central, the Brewers came back to beat the Cards. The Cubs Magic Number for a NL Wild Card berth is 13.

The Cubs kick off a three-game series against the Reds at Wrigley on Monday before the Cards come to town for a four-game weekend set. 149 games down, 13 to go.
