Cubs 5, Angels 1

CHICAGO — Kris Bryant hit his 28th home run, John Lackey outpitched former Angels teammate Jered Weaver, and the Cubs earned their eighth straight victory. Willson Contreras also homered and former Ray Ben Zobrist added an RBI double for the major league-leading Cubs, who won their 70th game and moved a season-high 29 over .500. Kole Calhoun homered on Lackey's third pitch, but the former Angels right-hander later retired 12 straight. Weaver gave up four earned runs.
