Hey hey! The red-hot Cubs crushed the Reds 16-6 on Wednesday behind a 4-for-4 night from Candelario, two homers from Happ, homers from Morel, Swanson, and Suzuki, and four Cincinnati errors.

Candelario is now 8-for-9 (.889 BA) in his return to the North Side. Fulmer and Merryweather each had their fourth consecutive scoreless appearance, and newcomer Jose Cuas threw a scoreless ninth to seal the victory.

The men in blue now sit just three games back of the Reds in the NL Central. The series wraps up Thursday night at Wrigley before Atlanta comes to town for a three-game weekend set.

108 games down, 54 to go. Go Cubs go!
