Holy cow! The Cubs came back to beat the Pirates 11-8 on Sunday behind TWO grand slams (Schwindel, Duffy) and a two-inning save from Wick. That completed a four-game sweep of the Bucs -- and the North Siders are on a six-game winning streak with 9 wins in their last 12 games.

Schwindel reached base in 4 of 5 plate appearances (3 H, 1 BB), raising his season average to .338 (1.037 OPS) while Happ & Duffy each had 3-for-5 days. J-Hey went 2-for-5 in the slugfest.

Rowan Wick tossed two scoreless innings to pick up the save.

The Reds come to Wrigley tomorrow.

Go Cubs go!
