Holy cow! The Cubs crushed the Padres 10-2 on Monday night behind Nico Hoerner's stellar MLB debut:  3-for-5 with a triple and 4 RBI. Hoerner started the game at short, having been called up due to recent injuries to both Javy Baez and Addison Russell. 

Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks struck out five and allowed only one earned run in 5 2/3 innings of work, and the Cubs' bullpen held the Friars scoreless for the duration.

Nick Castellanos also went 3-for-5 with a HR and 2 RBI, raising his average to .347 as a Cub, Jason Heyward had a 2-for-3 night, and Kyle Schwarber went 2-for-5 with a HR. That's Cub.

The series continues Tuesday in San Diego. 143 games down, 19 to go. The Cubs Magic Number for a Wild Card berth is 18.
