It’s not only a sweep for the Cubs, but it’s also the offensive breakout they’ve been waiting on for a week. And it came off of Jacob deGrom, with Kris Bryant and Dexter Fowler on the bench. Go figure.

The Cubs hit their first homers (Miguel Montero and Jonathan Herrera – yes, Jonathan Herrera) in 10 days, and Jake Arrieta was dominant.

That was the series to take the Cardinals-induced-vomit taste out of your mouth from the past weekend. God bless the Mets.
