CHICAGO — Matt Szczur hit his first career grand slam during a five-run eighth inning to lift the Cubs. Jon Lester struck out 10 over seven innings as the Cubs improved to 17-5, their best 22-game start since the 1907 team was 18-4. In a matchup of the clubs with the best and worst records in the majors, the Braves fell to 5-18. Freddie Freeman's solo shot in the fourth was only the Braves' fifth home run of the season.
