Cubs shoot for 5th straight as Twins drive cross town

The Chicago Cubs will aim for their fifth win in a row when they host the Minnesota Twins to open a three-game series Friday night.

Chicago (30-20) enters the series with a 5 1/2-game lead atop the National League Central. The Cubs are coming off back-to-back, walk-off wins against the Cleveland Indians, which followed consecutive victories against the Milwaukee Brewers by a combined score of 16-2.

Javier Baez played the biggest role in the Cubs' latest dramatic win. He drove in the winning run in the 10th inning Wednesday and made highlight-reel plays on the bases and in the field.
