Cubs beat Giants 5-1 to win 3rd straight

Kris Bryant, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist hit solo homers, spot starter Eddie Butler pitched five effective innings and the Chicago Cubs beat the San Francisco Giants 5-1 on Thursday for their third straight win.

Bradford Doolittle ESPN Staff Writer 

Zippy game at Wrigley Field, where the Chicago Cubs finished their homestand with a 5-1 win over the San Francisco Giants. Kris Bryant, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist provided the offense with solo homers off Jeff Samardzija. Eddie Butler and Mike Montgomery held the Giants to a lone, first-inning tally despite combining to strike out just one batter in the game.

Ross on what Cubs' World Series win was like

ESPN MLB analyst David Ross dishes on what winning a World Series with the Cubs was like, Chicago's slow start, his experience on Dancing with the Stars and more.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Maddon made sure to praise home plate umpire and crew chief Jeff Nelson on Wednesday calling him one of the best in the game. But Maddon believes MLB should review the rule which led to Jason Heyward being called out at first base for interference, apparently for veering onto the grass and interfering with a throw. The play was very close and helped thwart a possible big inning by the Cubs.
