Cubs demote former relief stud Carl Edwards Jr.

Milwaukee Brewers pitcher Josh Hader pitches to the Chicago Cubs during the seventh inning of a baseball game Sunday, April 7, 2019, in Milwaukee.

Cardinals 4, Padres 1 - At St. Louis: Adam Wainwright (1-0) gave up one run and five hits in six innings, struck out nine and didn't issue a walk while throwing 100 pitches. The front office revamped a struggling bullpen earlier Saturday, demoting right-hander Carl Edwards Jr.to Triple-A and putting lefty Mike Montgomery on the 10-day injured list. "We were patient and put good swings on strikes". Kyle Ryan and Allen Webster were called up to replace them but didn't fare well.

Braun had three RBIs for Milwaukee. Yu Darvish tossed four innings of three-run ball, walking four batters and striking out just two before getting pulled by manager Joe Maddon.

Davies cruised until the sixth, when Anthony Rizzo reached on first baseman Eric Thames' error and Javier Baez had an infield hit.

Hendricks took the loss in his first start of the year when he gave up 10 hits and two earned runs in just 4 1/3 innings.

Yelich hit his first home run against the Cubs since joining the Brewers last season. The Cubs signed him to a major league deal in November after he pitched for Iowa last season. "It's a little puzzling".

Tigers 3, Royals 1 - At Detroit: Tyson Ross (1-1) allowed one run and five hits over seven innings in his debut at Comerica Park debut, the last current ballpark he hadn't pitched in, and Detroit won its fifth straight.

"It's not like we're brushing it off in the least", Epstein said before the game.

How NYC plans to enforce its measles vaccination order
CDC figures show 71.2 percent of children that age in Alabama had received the recommended doses vaccines, including MMR, in 2018. Outbreaks of the measles - a disease thought to be all but eliminated in the USA - have health officials concerned.

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.

Not what the slumping Chicago Cubs needed at the end of a miserable, season-opening road trip. "I'm willing to shoulder the blame, but I really have zero concern".

Other than that the Cubs' offense has actually been respectable, leading the Majors in batting average and on base percentage with the third fewest strikeouts.

Cubs: Montgomery has a strained left lat muscle.

He followed up a good year with two great ones in 2017 and 2018 when he posted ERAs of 2.98 and 2.60, respectively, in 131 appearances in 118 1/3 innings.

Brewers: RHP Jeremy Jeffress could be back with the Brewers sometime during their next homestand.

Phillies 2, Twins 1 - At Philadelphia: Rhys Hoskins hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning off Jose Berrios (1-1), and Philadelphia improved to 6-2. The Cubs have allowed 25 runs in their last three games and four or more runs in all nine games this season.
