Hey hey! Cubs win! Cubs SWEEP! The North Siders came from behind to beat the Bucs 7-2 on Thursday behind another quality start from Stroman (6 IP, 2 ER, 5 K), a 3-for-3 night from Morel, a 3-for-5 night from Happ, and a 5-run 5th inning. 
The Pirates scored two in the 3rd to take the early lead, but the Cubs plated one in the 3rd and put up a five-spot in the 5th to take the lead for good. Morel's night raised his OPS to 1.016 for the season, and Cody Bellinger returned from an IL stint, going 1-for-3 with a run scored, walk, and RBI.
The bullpen threw three scoreless innings (0 BB, 2 H, 5 K) to seal the deal for the men in blue.
The Orioles come to town on Friday to kick off a three-game weekend series before the Cubs head to Pittsburgh for another three-game set against the first place Buccos.
68 games down, 94 to go. Go Cubs go!
