Green Bay Packers Jersey
« on: April 23, 2019, 05:37:22 PM »
DETROIT (AP) — When David Bote’s two-run homer cleared the fence in the fifth inning Kerry Wood Jersey , it felt almost like a milestone for the Chicago Cubs — the first time in six games they’d scored more than one run.“Whatever it was, was broken at that point,” manager Joe Maddon said. “That was broken. It was good to move it forward from there.”Bote’s drive was the first of three homers by the Cubs in an 8-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Wednesday night. Chicago had scored exactly one run in each of its previous five games, but even so, the victory Wednesday gave the Cubs a 3-3 mark on the road trip they were wrapping up.Jon Lester (14-5) allowed a run and seven hits in 5 2/3 innings. Five Chicago relievers finished. Pedro Strop came in with the bases loaded in the eighth and walked in a run, but he retired James McCann on a grounder to end that threat with the Cubs still up 4-2.Javier Baez and Anthony Rizzo hit consecutive homers in the ninth for Chicago to break the game open. Baez’s drive, a three-run shot, was his 26th of the year.“They put some balls in the seats. You knew they could do that,” Tigers manager Ron Gardenhire said. “That’s a very talented group who can do a lot of things. We matched up with them as best we could, and we fought hard, but you can’t always expect to beat them.”Francisco Liriano (3-9) allowed four runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.Daniel Murphy singled home a run in the fifth in his first game with the Cubs after being acquired in a trade from Washington on Tuesday.Lester, who pitched six innings in a 1-0 win over Pittsburgh last Thursday, was sharp again in Detroit. He allowed an RBI single to Ronny Rodriguez in the second, but that was all the scoring against him for the Tigers.“Lester can move that cutter around, and that makes him tough,” Detroit infielder Niko Goodrum said. “He can make it move in on you or use it as a backdoor pitch. We had chances, but we didn’t take advantage.”Liriano didn’t get out of the second inning in his previous start http://www.chicagocubsteamshop.com/authentic-david-ross-jersey , but he blanked Chicago for the first four innings before running into trouble in the fifth. The first six Chicago hitters of that inning reached base, and Bote’s drive put the Cubs up 2-1, snapping an 0-for-16 drought for the Chicago third baseman.Murphy added his RBI single, although a baserunning blunder by Willson Contreras and a double-play grounder by Rizzo helped Liriano escape the inning with only three runs in.Contreras hit an RBI infield single in the sixth to make it 4-1.The NL Central-leading Cubs snapped a three-game losing streak.STRONG DEBUTMurphy started at second base and hit leadoff for the Cubs. He went 2 for 5, driving in a run in the fifth and scoring on Baez’s homer.“Love the guy. I mean, baseball rat, just like us,” Bote said. “Talked to him a little bit there in the ninth inning, kind of just scratching the surface of hitting and approach, and what he’s got. I’m so excited he’s with us.”TRAINER’S ROOMCubs: Chicago put SS Addison Russell on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to Monday, with a sprained left middle finger.Tigers: LHP Daniel Norris (left groin strain) made a rehab start with Class A Lakeland on Tuesday night at Daytona, throwing three innings.UP NEXTCubs: Chicago starts a four-game home series against Cincinnati on Thursday night. Cole Hamels (3-0) takes the mound for the Cubs against Anthony DeSclafani (6-3).Tigers: Detroit opens a four-game set against the visiting Chicago White Sox on Thursday. Matthew Boyd (7-11) takes the mound for the Tigers against James Shields (5-14). Harry How/Getty ImagesThe Los Angeles Dodgers entered the 2018 playoffs with the highest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.The Milwaukee Brewers entered the 2018 playoffs with the lowest payroll of any National League postseason qualifier.After the Brewers shut out the Dodgers 4-0 on Monday in Game 3 of the National League Championship Series, the boys in blue are at risk of another epic autumn collapse.Given the dinero disparity, no one outside of L.A. will pity them.If you go by Spotrac, the Dodgers paid $200 million for their roster and the Brew Crew paid $109 million (rounding up).Yet, despite the massive dollar differential Addison Russell Jersey , Los Angeles is teetering on the edge of an October calamity. So much money. So few results.Yes, L.A. has won six straight division titles and advanced to Game 7 of the World Series in 2017.Executive Andrew Friedman and company have constructed an annually relevant operation thanks to an effective drafting and development strategy, aggressive moves on the international market and the backing of deep-pocketed owners.That said, the Dodgers haven't hoisted a Commissioner's Trophy since 1988. Contending is fine, but what is it worth if you're always the Brooklyn Bridegrooms and never the bride?The Dodgers dispatched the youthful Atlanta Braves in four games in the National League Division Series. Goliath won that round. Tip your slingshot.Through three games against Milwaukee, on the other hand, Los Angeles hasn't played like a powerhouse bound for confetti and champagne.On Monday, Dodgers hitters were frequently befuddled by the smoke-and-mirrors breaking-ball stylings of 30-year-old journeyman Jhoulys Chacin.Bill Shaikin BillShaikinDodgers tonight, by the numbers:0: Home runs0: Runs scored0: Hits with runners in scoring position10: AB with runners in scoring position14: Strikeouts.Final: Brewers 4, Dodgers 0. The Brewers are halfway to the World Series.Credit to Chacin, who has made previous stops with the Colorado Rockies, Arizona Diamondbacks, Braves, Los Angeles Angels and San Diego Padres. He arrived with his A-game at Chavez Ravine.Then again, he's precisely the type of hurler the high-priced Dodgers should attack with relish. The Brewers were a great story after defeating the Chicago Cubs in a one-game tiebreaker, winning the NL Central and besting the Rockies in the division series, but the knock against them was a lack of elite starting pitching.On Monday Sammy Sosa Jersey , they were entering a stretch of three games in three days on the road. This was L.A.'s chance to get to Milwaukee's bullpen鈥攚hich ranked second in the Senior Circuit with a 3.47 regular-season ERA鈥攁nd wear them out early.Instead, they shot blanks against Chacin and allowed him to chew precious innings while maintaining a zero on the scoreboard.That's not the way a title favorite behaves.Superstar and trade-deadline cavalry Manny Machado went 2-for-3 with a double. Overall, though, Los Angeles' bats were limp.Hyped, fireballing rookie Walker Buehler showed flashes of a future ace after getting an intro from none other than Ben Stein. When the dust settled, however, he was outdueled by Chacin.Buehler...Buehler?Kevork Djansezian/Getty ImagesThe Dodgers looked solid in spurts. Ultimately, they crumbled. It's becoming an all-too-familiar refrain.Add the continued, incongruous postseason mediocrity of Clayton Kershaw, and there's cause for sweaty-palmed hand-wringing in SoCal.Here's what Kershaw, one of the greatest pitchers of his generation and possibly all-time,told reportersafter the Dodgers' Game 7 loss to the Astros in the 2017 Fall Classic: "Maybe one of these days, I won't fail, we won't fail and we'll win one of these things."Maybe? Maybe isn't good enough. Windows don't stay open forever, even when you spend the gross domestic product of a small nation on payroll and face a small-market engine that could like Milwaukee.Another deep run won't suffice. Even another NL flag won't suffice. It's title or bust. After Game 3's goose egg against the Brewers, "bust" is the operative word.All statistics current as of Monday and courtesy of Baseball Reference.
