Jorge Soler and Kris Bryant hit back-to-back homers to lead off the fifth inning. The homer into the last row of the left field bleachers was Bryant's 25th home run of the season, which ties Billy Williams' rookie record for home runs. Williams set the record in 1961.

Addison Russell made an impressive diving catch and then flipped it to Javier Baez at second base to get the final out of the game.

The Cubs now trail the Pirates for 2nd place in the NL Central by a half game (The Pirates will play the Dodgers at 8:10pm CT). I'm sure I won't be the only one cheering on the Dodgers tonight! The Cubs are now 5 games behind the Cardinals for first place in the NL Central.
The Cubs magic number is now 6! Go Cubs Go! #wearegood
