A handful of Cubs pitchers threw the ball well enough to keep the Cubs in the game, and a monster two-run homer from Anthony Rizzo gave the Cubs the win.
Jake Arrieta had another mixed outing. If you could take away those three solo homers in the fourth (one of which was a fluke inside-the-parker), he would have pitched fantastically. But they all count.
But it’s a win, and it’s a big one …
