Yu definitely deserved this win. He has pitched really well the last four outings. He has great movement and just looks to be comfortable and confident. Just hope he can continue this form down the stretch.

At the moment the schedule favors the Cubs so they need to take advantage of it and start to put some distance between the rest of the division, because before long their schedule gets more difficult once they hit the road. No doubt they have got to improve on the the road and they are very aware of it. I have always believed that the first game of a series is the most important to win, especially on the the road. Every game is important, but that first one of the series can instill the confidence, but you have to win it. Score early, have a good shutdown inning then let the game play out.

It's so important for us to get healthy before September rolls around so we don't have a repeat of last September. Last September was so reminiscent of 1969 that it's hard to even think about. We are the best team in our division and it's time to prove it.
