Holy mackerel! The Cubs beat the Padres 7-1 on Tuesday behind a quality start from Zach Davies (6 IP, 0 ER, 1 H, 4 K), four RBI from Anthony Rizzo, and another home run from Patrick Wisdom.

Davies' start was arguably his best of the season, and Andrew Chafin & Tommy Nance continued their dominance out of the bullpen. Chafin's season ERA now sits at 1.98 while Nance has yet to yield an earned run in 2021.

On the offensive side, Tony's 4 RBI night included a 2-for-4 performance at the plate and a HR while Wisdom's homer was his 8th of the season in just 40 AB. Willson Contreras also homered for the North Siders, and Joc Pederson collected two hits from the leadoff spot.

The series wraps up Wednesday at Petco Park before the Cubs head back to Wrigley to kick off a weekend series against the Cardinals. 61 games down, 101 to go.

Go Cubs go!
