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.
