Jubilant Cubs aim for strong showing against Giants

The Chicago Cubs figure to be in a good mood when they open a six-game homestand starting Tuesday night against the San Francisco Giants.

For one thing, the Cubs own a dominant 41-19 record at home this season. For another, the team is coming off a winning trip to Williamsport, Pa., where players mingled with Little League players before cruising to a 7-1 win over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Sunday night.

Anthony Rizzo, Kris Bryant, Cole Hamels and others took turns sliding down a grass hill with kids before the game. Little Leaguers filled the stands and provided a boost of energy to the club with six weeks left in the regular season.
