A resilient Cubs offense grinded their way back from an early three-run deficit on Saturday and made a winner of John Lackey in his return to Fenway Park. Moments after Miguel Montero hit a game-tying homer in the top of the seventh, Kyle Schwarber's RBI single up the middle put the Cubs ahead for the first time during that crucial three-run rally, and the bullpen held it over the final three innings for Lackey in a 7-4 win over Boston.
