Hey hey! The first place Cubs downed the Cards 6-3 on Tuesday behind a quality start from Darvish (6 IP, 1 ER, 7 K) and HRs from Happ and Schwarber. The win gave the North Siders a 4.5 game lead in the NL Central.

Ian Happ raised his season average to .313, going 2-for-3 with 2 walks, and Jason Heyward's 2-for-3 night raised his average to .291.

Darvish's season ERA now sits at 1.80, and Rowan Wick struck out 4 of the 5 batters he faced to pick up his 4th save of the season while lowering his ERA to 1.13.

The series continues tomorrow with a twinbill at the Friendly Confines. After an off day Thursday, the homestand wraps up with a three-game set against the White Sox. 22 games down, 38 to go.

Go Cubs go!
