It was a Starlin Marte sac-fly in the bottom half of the 8th that put the Buccos in the winner's circle. They "Raise the Jolly Roger" on "Maddon Ball" in game 1 of two as Buccos Captain Save-A-Game Mark Melancon goes save #46 and that is mowing them down late!
Cubs back stop Miguel Montero was the only Cubs Players that had multi-hits as Starlin Castro was 1 for 4 with a run. The Buccos were led by the top of that line up of Neil Walker, Gregory Polanco, and "Cutch 22" Andrew McCutchen as they combined to go 3 for 10 with three runs runs and two RBI.
Cubs fall to 82-61 and the Buccos move to 87-56...leading the Cubbies by 5 full games!
Game #2 tonight at 7:05pm ET...
