Real or not? Giolito's gem

Lucas Giolito spun a seven-inning no-hitter for Triple-A Charlotte on Thursday, but was it really a sign that he'll turn his season around?

ESPN Stats and Information  

Since his most recent no-hitter vs. the Reds in April 2016, Jake Arrieta hasn't been nearly as dominant as he was prior to that game. That's especially been the case this season.

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo was either really getting into the 70s/Anchorman theme, or he grew up an Oscar Gamble fan.

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.
