The Cubs played a solid game after getting down 3-0 to the Red Sox eventually coming back to win 7-4. Rizzo, Montero and Zobrist all homered but it was the bloop single by Kyle Schwarber off lefty Robby Scott which produced the go ahead RBI. Schwarber had struck out 6 times in 2 days but came through when the Cubs needed it. Once again the bullpen was great as Wade Davis is 6 for 6 in save opportunities after striking out the side in the ninth. The Cubs guaranteed themselves a winning month as they are 13-10 with one game to play.
