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.

That's what men do."

The White Sox continue to surprise, improving to 13-9 with their sixth straight win after beating the Tigers in 10 innings. What's amazing is they're doing this even though several key guys have struggled: Jose Abreu and Melky Cabrera hit their first home runs on Saturday, Todd Frazier is under .200, Tim Anderson has struggled and Jose Quintana has been inconsistent. This will quiet the trade rumors for now.
