The long ball helped the Cubs to victory.
The Cubs improved to 51-46 with this win and were in a first-place tie with the Brewers in the N.L. Central. The win made their post-All-Star record 8-1.
Well, hello, first place.
It’s been a while. How have you been? We’ve missed you.
The Cubs spotted the Cardinals another lead, but home runs by Kyle Schwarber and Willson Contreras, as well as a solid first Wrigley Field outing from Jose Quintana, gave them a 5-3 victory that put them in first place in the N.L. Central by one percentage point over the Brewers.
