CHICAGO — The Cubs picked up the home run pace on Thursday as Kris Bryant, Jason Heyward and Ben Zobrist each hit solo shots to post a 5-1 victory over the Giants and Jeff Samardzija for their seventh win in the past nine games.
Bryant launched his 11th homer with two outs in the first, and Heyward and Zobrist led off the fifth and sixth innings, respectively, to hand the Giants their 12th loss in the past 14 games at Wrigley Field, which includes postseason play. Chicago now has 26 home runs in the past 14 games, second-most in the National League behind the D-backs (28).
The Cubs begin a memorial Day Weekend series with the Dodgers Friday night. Coverage begins at 8:35 p.m. on 1650 The Fan.
