Cubs 5, Giants 4: Anthony Rizzo’s big day

Cubs 5, Giants 4: Anthony Rizzo’s big day

The Cubs first baseman slugged two homers and the team held on to win. Anthony Rizzo is a noted streak hitter, always has been and likely always will be. He’s now hitting 10-for-27 (.370/.500/.926) over his last eight games with five home runs (and only two strikeouts!). Streak, begun! Hopefully this will continue when the Cubs finally get out of this miserable Chicago cold weather and to warm southern California for the next week. Two of those home runs came against the Giants Wednesday night, helping lead the Cubs to a 5-4 victory. The Cubs needed both of Rizzo’s blasts (it was his...

MLB rumors: Padres shopping Brad Hand

MLB rumors: Padres shopping Brad Hand

The lefty is already on the trade market as San Diego continues its rebuilding process. The Padres are open for business in trade talks and have lefty Brad Hand available, according to Buster Olney of ESPN.com. The Padres, who currently sit last in the majors with a 16-31 record, will once again be sellers at the trade deadline despite not having many pieces to deal. Hand, and fellow pitchers Trevor Cahill and Ryan Buchter appear to be the strongest candidates to be dealt considering the team’s dreadful performance across the board this season. Hand, 27, owns a career-best 1.80 ERA and...

Mets Morning News: Overworked bullpen gets overworked, implodes

Your Thursday morning dose of New York Mets and MLB news, notes, and links. Meet the Mets The Mets have had some excruciating losses this season, and this loss against the Padres ranks right there among them. Terry Collins pulled Robert Gsellman after six even though he had a low pitch count and just finished an easy sixth. True to form, the bullpen blew lead and the Mets were down by one run in the ninth. Despite loading the bases with nobody out, Curtis Granderson, Rene Rivera, and Juan Lagares all failed to get the tying run home, and it all goes down as another loss in the books for...

LOS ANGELES – Ask Dodgers right-hander Kenta Maeda about the hamstring tightness that sent him to the DL and the playful sarcasm in his answer is not lost in translation. “Fine,” he said through his interpreter, a twinkle in Maeda’s eye. “But thanks for being concerned.” Maeda went on the DL two weeks ago, ostensibly […]
