8/30 1st game: Cubs 5, Cardinals 1

* Felix Doubront picked up the win in his first game with the Cubs. The lefty gave up one run on seven hits over seven innings in an efficient outing, throwing 89 pitches. He will continue to start as the Cubs go with a six-man rotation.

* Logan Watkins hit his first career home run, and Chris Valaika followed with his second of the season. It’s the eighth time the Cubs have hit back to back homers, and fifth time this month.

* Starlin Castro hit his 14th home run, which matches his personal high set in 2012. He’s batting .379 this month.
