    3 takeaways from Cubs' West Coast trip, including Kyle Hendricks' struggles and Christopher Morel's stellar defense

    Hayden Wesneski's phone kept buzzing with so many missed calls and text messages in the wee hours Wednesday that he eventually awoke to find it on the floor. Thankfully, Wesneski got an assist from his Triple-A Iowa roommate Matt Mervis, who woke him up at 1 a.m. with a knock on the door to let him know their manager, Marty Pevey, was trying to get ahold of him. A long day that required a 4 a.m. trip to the ballpark to pick up his gear en route to the airport to fly to Chicago and then halfway across the country to Phoenix culminated in what manager Craig Counsell called the Cubs' best pitching performance of the season. Running on little sleep and adrenaline, Wesneski tossed four shutout innings of one-hit ball without walking a batter in the Cubs' 5-3 victory Wednesday against the Diamondbacks to secure the series win.

    Cubs rookie Michael Busch homers in 5th consecutive game to equal club record

    Chicago Cubs rookie Michael Busch homered for the fifth straight game Monday night, matching a franchise record. Busch led off the second inning with his sixth home run of the season, a 419-foot drive to center field on an 0-2 pitch from Arizona Diamondbacks starter Merrill Kelly. Four other Cubs players have gone deep in five consecutive games — including current third baseman Christopher Morel, who did it last year.
