Holy cow! The Cubs beat the Guardians 10-1 on Friday behind a quality start from Steele (6.1 IP, 0 ER, 6 K), three RBI from Morel, three hits from Nico, and two hits apiece from Bellinger, Madrigal, and Young.

Young's delayed arrival in Chicago has been a welcome one, as he's off to a hot start with a .444 average and a 1.666 OPS through his first 9 at-bats. Hard to believe that the Cubs were choosing to play Mancini instead of him, considering what a great year he's had in Iowa.
The game was a nice departure from the North Siders' struggles against the Phillies earlier this week, and kicked off a weekend set against Cleveland.

The series continues Saturday at the Friendly Confines.

80 games down, 82 to go. Go Cubs go!
