Cubs Blast A's

Patrick Wisdom hit two more homers and drove in four runs, leading Hayden Wesneski and the Chicago Cubs to a 10-1 victory over the Oakland Athletics on Monday night.


Wisdom, who played at nearby Saint Mary’s College, connected for a solo drive in the second inning and a three-run shot in the eighth. He has five homers during a four-game streak and eight homers on the season, tied for the big league lead.


Ian Happ added three RBIs and Cody Bellinger had a career-high five hits as the Cubs won for the eighth time in 11 games. Wesneski (1-0) pitched seven innings of one-run ball after struggling in his first two starts of the season.


Chicago finished with a season-high 20 hits in its first game in Oakland since 2016.


Yan Gomes and Nico Hoerner each hit an RBI single before Happ sent a two-run single into center field.


Hoerner had two hits and scored three runs. He also picked up his majors-leading ninth stolen base.


Marcus Stroman (2-1, 1.00 ERA) starts Tuesday night for Chicago opposite Oakland LHP Ken Waldichuk (0-2, 10.20 ERA).
