Holy cow! The Cubs won their fourth in a row on Friday, beating the Orioles 10-3 at Wrigley behind a nice start from Hendricks (5 IP, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K) and a six-run offensive outburst in the sixth inning.

Amaya, Swanson, and Morel each hit solo homers in the 3rd to give the Cubs the lead, and the big inning put the game away for the North Siders.

Mancini reached base in all 4 plate appearances, Morel raised his season OPS to 1.063, and Happ & Hoerner each drove in two.

Fulmer had another nice outing (1 IP, 0 R, 1 H, 0 BB, 2 K) and hasn't given up an earned run in eight appearances since May 27. and newcomer Anthony Kay has looked sharp in his first three appearances as a Cub (3 IP, 0 ER, 0 BB, 3 K).

The series continues on Saturday in Chicago. 69 games down, 93 to go.

Go Cubs go!
