Hey hey! The first place Cubs hung on to beat the Reds 8-7 in Cincinnati on Monday night. Jon Lester had a solid start (5 IP, 0 H, 0 ER) and Steven Souza drove in two in his Chicago debut. Anthony Rizzo hit his third homer of the season and scored three times.

But the star of the night was Jeremy Jeffress, who entered the game in the bottom of the ninth in a one-out, bases-loaded jam and picked up the save. Whew.

The four-game series continues Tuesday at the Great American Ball Park.  4 games down, 56 to go.

Go Cubs go!
