Big 8th inning lifts Cubs over Brewers

Another game another loss for sluggish Cubs who have to start thinking of minor changes

Another game another loss for sluggish Cubs who have to start thinking of minor changes

Bottom Line: It's no secret the Cubs have struggled mightily, and while history may not be on their side, but they have the right guy getting them going in the home opener.

Both were in Milwaukee on Saturday, where the Cubs won 14-8, and available to pitch in Game 2 of the Cubs' series against the Brewers. His last multihomer game was on August 16, 2015 for St. Louis against Miami, a season before he signed a $184 million, eight-year contract with Chicago. "It's good to be a part of the offense". Given the Cubs excellent offense to start the season, Chicago's 1-6 start can be laid directly at the feet of the pitching staff.

Nationals 12, Mets 9- At New York: Max Scherzer (1-2) allowed four runs and eight hits in 6 1/3 innings with seven strikeouts, no walks and two hit batters, and he also singled in the game's first run.

"Cole was outstanding", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.

Rays 3, Giants 0 - At San Francisco: Yandy Diaz homered on the second pitch of the game from Drew Pomeranz (0-1), and Yonny Chirinos (2-0) allowed two hits in five innings. He limited the damage, stranding two by striking out Christian Yelich to end the second. Davies pitched 5 2/3 innings of five-hit ball, and Alex Claudio got two outs before handing off to Hader. It's just on us to play better ball defensively, throw more strikes, and this thing should stabilize in a hurry.

Chicago improved to 2-6 with its first win since opening day. Bastian was among those to report that the club has promoted lefty Kyle Ryan and selected Allen Webster from AAA Iowa. Chicago pounded out 26 runs the last three games at Milwaukee.

The Secret Service has no audio security recordings of its interactions with her and what she said on the grounds of Mar-a-Lago. Yujing Zhang has a detention hearing Monday before federal Magistrate Judge William Matthewman in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Yelich hit his first home run against the Cubs since joining the Brewers last season.

Willson Contreras hit a two-run home run in Sunday's loss to the Brewers. "It's a little puzzling".

"He's done such great work for us", Maddon said.

With a 1-6 record coming into the game and no contract beyond this season, Maddon said he wasn't anxious about his job status.

"Everything felt pretty good today", Davies said. "If I have to rely on a week's worth of baseball games, that's a bad process. He's going to start hitting, I really believe that". HIs.592 winning percentage is the third-highest in franchise history, behind Frank Chance (1905-1912) and Al Spaulding, who led the Cubs in 1876-77.

Brewers: RHP Jeremy Jeffress could be back with the Brewers sometime during their next homestand. He missed most of spring training because of shoulder soreness and was diagnosed with a strained left lat Saturday.
