Hey hey! The Cubs came back to beat the Phillies 6-3 on Tuesday night behind a nice start from Adrian Sampson (5 IP, 2 ER, 3 K) and homers from Patrick Wisdom and Alfonso Rivas. Rowan Wick struck out the side in the ninth to pick up his fourth save.

Wisdom's blast was his 26th of the season, tying Kris Bryant's record for most home runs as a Cubs rookie.

Wick's season ERA now sits at impressive 2.16 (0.96 WHIP) with 22 punchouts in just over 16 innings pitched.

The Cubs have been mathematically eliminated from the NL Central title race, so the CMN is now focused on an NL Wild Card berth.

The series continues Wednesday in Philadelphia.

Go Cubs go!
