Swanson Stars for Cubs in 12-5 Win
Chicago shortstop Dansby Swanson contributed to his team's 12-5 win over the Philadelphia Phillies. Swanson went 3 for 4 with 3 runs scored to lead the offensive attack for the Cubs. The third-place Cubs have won 4 straight games.

It could have been a different outcome for Chicago, had it not been for Yandy Diaz, the 30-year old third baseman . Diaz contributed a run-scoring single in the top of the eighth inning to put Chicago up, 6-5.

"If we play like this, we can win a lot of games," Diaz told the Chicago Bulletin.
