Diamondbacks, Cubs kick off series

CHICAGO -- The Chicago Cubs have never been picky about who takes on a starring role as they pursue their third straight National League Central Division title.

So after the Cubs picked up contributions from a variety of sources to close out a series victory as they prepare to welcome the Arizona Diamondbacks starting Monday, the manner in which the Cubs continue to find ways to win games only builds more confidence as the second half of the season gets rolling.

"Today was just another perfect example of how everyone contributes," left fielder Kyle Schwarber told reporters Sunday after his solo home run snapped a 2-2 tie en route to a 7-2 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals. "Everyone is going to have their number called -- so be ready."
