The Cubs beat the Rays 2-1 behind a solid pitching performance by Mike Montgomery and three relievers including Wade Davis who pitched in his fourth consecutive game while earning his 32nd save in 32 tries. He struck out the side in the ninth in front of a heavily pro-Cubs crowd. Kyle Schwarber's second inning HR and Javier Baez' RBI double in the fifth were enough offense thanks mostly to Montgomery who threw a one hitter without walking anyone over six innings. Brad Miller took him deep to break up the no-no but the Cubs got the victory and reduced their magic number to win the division to just nine with 12 games remaining.
