Shortly after Thursday's 5-1 win over the San Francisco Giants, the Cubbies showered, cleaned up and got dressed before taking a bus to the airport and get on a plane heading to the West Coast. The win moved Chicago 1/2 game ahead of the Milwaukee Brewers and into 1st place in the National League Central for the 1st time this season.
