Cubs C Miguel Montero (thumb) says he's close to returning
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Catcher Miguel Montero, who has been on the disabled list since July 17 with a sprained left thumb, will see a specialist on Thursday and travel with the team to Milwaukee in the hopes of playing this weekend, per ESPN.com. 

"I can play," Montero said. "It won't be 100 percent until after the season."

Montero's return would give the Cubs some lineup flexibility given that rookie catcher Kyle Schwarber has hit well since being promoted to the majors. Schwarber can play in the outfield, giving Chicago a stronger lineup.

Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo delivers two-run homer in win Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo came through in the clutch with a big two-run home run in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. Rizzo's blast gave the Cubs a 3-0 lead in the third inning, and they were able to hang on for the victory.

The homer, Rizzo's 17th of the year, was his only hit of the afternoon. The young star has been struggling at the plate over the last few weeks, as he's hitting just .132 with two RBI over his past 10 games. His season average has dropped from .294 to .279 over that stretch.

Cubs' Dexter Fowler helps beat former team in win Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Center fielder Dexter Fowler got the party started for the Cubs on Wednesday, as he led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run to put his team up 1-0 early. The Cubs would go on to beat the Rockies 3-2.

The home run, Fowler's 10th of the year, was his only hit of the afternoon. He did walk twice and score twice however. He was also caught stealing for the sixth time in 22 attempts.

Fowler has been heating up at the plate, batting .361 with two home runs over his past 10 games.

Cubs RP Hector Rondon gets first save in over a month Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs reliever Hector Rondon recorded his 13th save of the year in Wednesday's 3-2 win over the Rockies. Rondon struck out two and walked a batter in a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the victory.

The save was Rondon's first since June 20, as the Cubs have been mixing and matching at the back end of the bullpen for the last month or so. Still, Rondon has been scored upon just once in his last 19 outings, and his ERA is down to 1.80 for the season.

Cubs SP Jon Lester K's 14 Rockies in 3-2 victory Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Cubs starter Jon Lester was terrific on Wednesday afternoon, as he struck out a season-high 14 batters, en route to the 3-2 win over the Rockies. Lester allowed two runs on five hits over eight solid innings, as he threw 77 of his 117 pitches for strikes.

Lester (6-8) gave up a run in the fourth, and another in the seventh on a Carlos Gonzalez solo home run. Other than that, he kept the Rockies at bay with the 14 whiffs. Lester recorded the most amount of strikeouts in a game by a Cubs pitcher since 2004, and he's the only Cubs left-hander to strikeout 14 batters in a game since at least 1914. 

"That was his best performance all year," said Cubs manager Joe Maddon, per MLB.com. "Just stuff-wise, I thought he had everything going on. … Everything was on and that's why you saw the result you did."

Lester has pitched at least seven innings in each of his past seven starts, going 2-2 with a 1.66 ERA over that stretch.
