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.

Rizzo homers twice and the Philly Phanatic scares one young fan (0:46)

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Joe Maddon made sure to praise home plate umpire and crew chief Jeff Nelson on Wednesday calling him one of the best in the game. But Maddon believes MLB should review the rule which led to Jason Heyward being called out at first base for interference, apparently for veering onto the grass and interfering with a throw. The play was very close and helped thwart a possible big inning by the Cubs.

Cubs hold on to beat Giants (1:23)

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

It got dicey in the ninth but the Cubs held on to beat the Giants 5-4 after Wade Davis gave up a 2-run HR in the ninth inning, his first earned runs given up this season. It took him 34 pitches to get through the inning as an insurance run in the eighth was the difference. Jason Heyward scored after tripling to open the inning. Anthony Rizzo was the hitting star as he homered twice and was on base 4 times.

Jesse Rogers ESPN Staff Writer 

Wade Davis just gave up his first earned runs of the season on his 12th pitch to Mac Williamson of the Giants who homered to right field. Davis hasn't pitched in a week and gave up a single before Williamson went deep to right.
