Holy cow! The Cubs came back to beat the Bucs 7-6 on Saturday at Wrigley on a walk-off infield single by Frank Schwindel for their fifth straight win. Six different Cubs drove in runs and the bullpen picked up Kyle Hendricks and Trevor Megill with four innings of scoreless relief.

Frank the Tank had another three-hit game, raising his season average to .326 (.998 OPS). Rafael Ortega also had a three-hit game, raising his average to .299 (.839 OPS).

After the Cubs coughed up five runs in the 5th, things were looking bleak for the North Siders. But Schwindel homered in the bottom of the 5th (his 10th of the season) and the men in blue plated three in the bottom of the ninth to nail down the comeback win.

The series wraps up tomorrow in the Friendly Confines.

Go Cubs go!
