Cheslor Cuthbert has collected six of his 22 RBIs on the season over his last five games after driving in a run in Tuesday's triumph. Jon Jay has hit safely in 12 of his 15 contests this season and is in the midst of a six-game streak after recording one of the five singles by Chicago, which has lost seven of its last eight games - including all five thus far during its 10-game road trip.
