He got slapped around last time out, but that wasn’t going to happen to Jeff Samardzija today. He was solid, and the Cubs’ bats showed up to back him. He even got a two-run homer from Emilio Bonifacio – not even Jeff Samardzija can lose on a day like that.

That’s five in a row for the Cubs, which is swell.
