Holy cow! The Cubs shut out the best team in baseball on Monday, downing the Rays 1-0 behind a complete game from Marcus Stroman (9 IP, 1 BB, 1 H, 8 K).

One day after former Cub and Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins declared the complete game to be dead, Stroman notched his first since 2017 by dominating the league's most productive offense.

A Tauchman sacrifice fly drove in Suzuki for the game's only run.

The series continues Tuesday at Wrigley. 53 games down, 109 to go. Go Cubs go!

Hey hey! The Cubs returned to Wrigley to down the Mets 7-2 on Tuesday behind a nice start from Smyly (5 IP, 2 ER, 5 K) and HRs from Suzuki, Mervis, and Morel.

Morel is on fire, now sporting a 1.384 OPS with homers in five consecutive games (and 9 of his 12 games this season).

Fulmer notched his first scoreless inning since May 13 to finish the game, and Leiter continued his dominance, striking out two in 1 1/3 innings of work and lowering his season ERA to 1.86.

The series continues Wednesday at the Friendly Confines.

Go Cubs go!
