"That was above and beyond good stuff", manager Joe Maddon said.
"Obviously, we've got guys who are swinging the bat pretty well who can play first base", Stearns said Wednesday, according to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel. They reached a season-high three games over.500 when they scored an unearned run in the seventh on a two-out grounder by Javy Baez. The Cubs said that Bryant does not have a concussion.
Yu Darvish avoided the fifth-inning blues on a cool Friday afternoon at Wrigley Field, leaving the mound to chants of "Yuuuu" after throwing six strong innings against Milwaukee.
He yielded just three hits with eight strikeouts and two walks, lowering his ERA from 6.86 to 5.26. Darvish even added a double at the plate, which was one of only seven hits the Cubs had. Tillman (1-4) struck out five and walked two on 98 pitches to get Baltimore its second win in 13 games. He got a no-decision in the game while taking the loss was Dan Jennings, who allowed an unearned run. Tyler Chatwood has struggled in his two home starts this year, but I see him getting back on track in this one against a Milwaukee team that has scored just two total runs in the first two games of this series.
After loading the bases in the seventh thanks to some wildness from Cubs reliever Steve Cishek, the Brewers tied it 2-2 on Yelich's sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing, which a howling wind kept in the ballpark.
Darvish was provided a lead the bottom half when Albert Almora Jr. doubled and scored on a single by Baez, who stole second and came home on Anthony Rizzo's single. Zack Godley (4-1) allowed four runs on 10 hits over five innings to improve to 3-0 lifetime at Nationals Park. Pedro Strop got the win and is now 3-0 with a 2.79 ERA on the year. Anderson is allowing just a.206 batting average and has given up three or less runs in four of his first five starts. Brandon Morrow, the Cubs' fifth reliever, pitched a flawless ninth for his sixth save in six chances.
Our models project Bote to hit.264 with 2 homers and 11 RBI over the remainder of the 2018 season.
