Who plays shortstop if Javy Baez goes down — Chicago Cubs

Ian Happ thought he hit a triple and got his cycle. He didn't

Three batters after crashing into the wall while tracking Kemp's home run, Jay saved the Cubs a run with a diving catch of Swanson's blooper. No Cubs team since 1930 has scored more runs in August than this one did with 191.

"Those are the conversations we're having", Cubs GM Jed Hoyer said.

Ian Happ, 23, went deep against the Pittsburgh Pirates to join Javier Baez (age 24), Kyle Schwarber (24), Willson Contreras (25) and Kris Bryant (25) in the exclusive club. "We're playing loose right now and it's fun to see". I told our trainer that I will find out in the first inning if I am going to blow out. Jon Lester gave up four earned runs over five innings to get the win.

After 135 games last year the Cubs were 87-48, 12 wins better than the current team.

Jesse joined ESPN Chicago in September 2009 and covers the Chicago Cubs for ESPNChicago.com and ESPN Radio 1000.

Maddon admitted Lester's two-plus weeks off could actually be a blessing in disguise.

"It was difficult, but we won it", said Cubs manager Joe Maddon. He departed in the third.

The Cubs appeared to break it open with five runs in the fourth, highlighted by Rizzo's bases-clearing triple.

Some in the organization would prefer a five-man rotation the rest of the season, while others would like to keep Montgomery in it and go with six starters.

Russell was scratched from the lineup at Triple-A Iowa on Wednesday after dealing with soreness in his injured foot, and will return to Chicago to be evaluated, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. "But I'm really happy and excited to be here and really just can't wait to get this start in". The issue, from the Brewers' perspective, was that there was no confirmed proof that weather was going to be an issue for the game.

D'backs 9, Rockies 5 • Taijuan Walker struck out a career-high 10, Daniel Descalso homered and Arizona won in Colorado. But that doesn't excuse the absolutely absurd squabbling happening between these two teams.

What does this start mean for Hendricks?

They're above us for a reason. I didn't see it. I had my head down.

Montgomery is no stranger to this purgatory type of situation.

Moving forward, regardless of role, he knows the preparation is still the same. In the second half alone-a stretch in which the Cubs have gone 32-15-Rizzo is hitting over.325 with 11 homers and 44 RBIs. The ERA is where you want it to be after coming back from the DL. "It's unfortunate that he came out like that".
