The bats blew up and the bullpen held it together. A very nice, and big win for the Cubs.

Winning it late! It took 12, but the Cubs pulled it out.
What a freaking HUGE outing by Jon Lester.
Again? Cubs tie it late, and then lose it. Third game in a row.
Another terrible loss for the Cubs. They’ve been great this year, but they’ve struggled against the worst team in baseball.
The Cubs battled back to tie the game late … but then lost it even later than that.
That’s a doubleheader sweep!
Game one goes to the Cubs, and Jake Arrieta lowered his ERA to UNDER TWO.
All was reasonably well until a gut punch 8th inning.
Huge lead early means you can have a bad inning late. Cubs win again.
Bats: explode. Dan Haren: awesome.
And the Cubs pull off the sweep with another homer party!!!
Jake Arrieta is absurdly good, y’all.
