Cubs' Baez collides with Heyward year after Schwarber injury

Cubs' Baez collides with Heyward year after Schwarber injury

He broke through Friday with his first base hit of the season then collected three hits Saturday as the Chicago Cubs picked up a victory in Milwaukee.

TWINS 3, WHITE SOX 1: Phil Hughes pitched six strong innings for his first win in nearly a year, and Minnesota beat Chicago for its first 4-0 start since 1987.

Davies' last outing aside, starting pitching had been a point of strength for the Brewers, who hadn't allowed a first-inning run through their first five games and combined for a 1.24 ERA in their three previous games until Saturday, when Tommy Milone was tagged for four in four innings of work. Schwarber had surgery and sat out until the World Series, in which he returned and hit.412 to help the Cubs beat the Cleveland Indians in seven games.

Rockies 2, Dodgers 1: Kyle Freeland allowed one run in six solid innings in his major league debut, leading hometown Colorado past Los Angeles. "That was really good, so hopefully we can kind of turn the page on this whole opening week and just play our game".

"You're seeing some stuff in the outfield that tells you the grass isn't happy", joked manager Craig Counsell.

Phivolcs said Intensity 7 was felt in Mabini, Batangas while Intensity 6 was felt in Calatagan, Nasugbu and Tingloy in Batangas . Chief Inspector Glenn Valdepenas, jail warden, said they had to temporarily cancel the visiting hours due to the quakes.

The Cubs put runners on base in each of the next four innings but couldn't do anything with them. Nick Franklin, claimed off waivers earlier in the week, took Braun's place.

But Maddon was careful not to declare Baez as his starting second baseman, similar to his days with the Rays when he said he never named a closer but used the same reliever in save situations.

The Cubs lost the game 2-1 in 11 innings. Contreras' throw home to Montgomery was late, and the Brewers celebrated by mobbing Braun at the plate.

Baez was bruised around his left eye when he collided with center fielder Jason Heyward on Friday night and left the game. I couldn't see what hit me until I watched the video.

Braun, 33, has missed time in past years due to tightness in his back, sidelined for short periods of time in both 2015 and 2016.

Counsell said it was similar to what Braun experienced a year ago, when he needed to take occasional days off, but wouldn't completely rule him out for the series finale. He'll be facing off against Kyle Hendricks, who is making his 2017 regular season debut.

Chicago AB R H BI BB SO Avg.

OUR PICK: The under has cashed in nine of Hendricks' last 10 starts versus the Brewers and are 4-1 in his last five road starts against Milwaukee.

Machado hit a three-run drive in the fifth inning to make it 5-4, and Smith completed the comeback in the seventh with a two-run shot off Tyler Clippard (0-1).
