Bryce Harper blamed his 8th inning ejection on his...pregame music? "I think I need to change my playlist because I get a little fired up...'5AM' really got me fired up, by Logic. I called my brother and was like, ‘Man, I'm so fired up to play today.' I guess it got me a little too fired up. I guess I need to mix in some Temptations and some of those jazz bands to calm me down a little bit."

The Cubs beat the White Sox 8-3 behind a strong outing by Jake Arrieta who gave up just two hits. The big blow in the game was a 3 run double by Anthony Rizzo during a long fifth inning when the Cubs scored 4 times. Rizzo had 4 RBI's on the night. Later, Addison Russell homered and the Cubs drew 8 walks to wear down White Sox pitching. The win, combined with a Milwaukee loss, vaulted the Cubs into sole possession of first place.
