Hey hey! The first place Cubs picked up their first win of the 2021 campaign on Saturday, downing the Bucs 5-1 behind a quality start from Jake Arrieta (6 IP, 1 ER, 5 K) and home runs from Kris Bryant and Jason Heyward.

El Mago swiped two bases while both he and J-Hey went 2-for-4, and the bullpen threw three perfect innings of relief. Speaking of relief, Craig Kimbrel struck out the side in the 9th to end the game.

First pitch of the series' rubber game is Sunday at 1:20 in Chicago; the Brewers head to town Monday to kick off a three-game set.  2 games down, 160 to go.

Go Cubs go!
