Yelich, acquired from Miami, was hitting.385 with one homer and five RBIs.

Brandon Morrow got three outs for his first save since signing with the Cubs in the offseason.

"Just thinking about Wrigley Field, makes me feel way better than going away", said Contreras - and finally he along with his teammates will see the wait come to an end.
