Cubs hold on for 4-3 victory over Blue Jays

(TSX / STATS) -- CHICAGO -- Wade Davis has been consistent for months, but manager Joe Maddon thinks the closer has been getting even sharper.

Davis pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning to convert his 26th consecutive save of the season and nail down the Chicago Cubs' 4-3 victory over the Toronto Blue Jays on Saturday afternoon.

Davis tied the franchise record for the longest streak of consecutive saves. The Cubs' Ryan Dempster also saved 26 straight from 2005-06. Davis' 26 saves in 26 opportunities represent the longest streak in the majors. He has converted his last 31 chances since September with Kansas City.
