The Chicago Cubs found the offensive power that has eluded them most of this young season.
In a big way. A 13-4 way.
The Cubs got homers from four different players (William Contreras (2),Javy Baez, Kris Bryant (2), David Bote) for a total of six for the game. That was more than enough for starting pitcher Trevor Williams who finished after 5 innings of work and earned his second win of the year.
The Cubs never trailed in this one, and it was over early. After Baez launched a three-run homer scoring Bryant and Peters in the 3rd – this following Contreras’ two bombs – the Cubs were up 6-0 and the rout was on.
The Cubs play the Braves tomorrow in the rubber match of a three-game set.
