An accomplished veteran southpaw will face off against an inexperienced but ambitious right-hander when the Chicago Cubs host the Cleveland Indians on Wednesday night to wrap up a two-game series at Wrigley Field.
Elite Youth Kurt Warner Jersey Chicago (25-20) will look to escape with a series tie after suffering a lopsided 10-1 defeat one night earlier. This is the first series between the Indians and Cubs at Wrigley Field since the 2016 World Series.
I’m just taking the approach, ‘OK, I’m in the bullpen, and I’m going to do whatever I can to help this team win out of the bullpen,’ Tomlin said to the Cleveland Plain Dealer. I’ll be in the bullpen for the foreseeable future. I’m not sure how long that’s going to be.
It could be for the rest of the year. It could be for two or three times through the rotation. You never know.
Indians outfielder Michael Brantley carries an 11-game hitting streak into the game. He is hitting .347 during the hitting streak with four home runs, 12 RBI and 14 runs scored.
Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo ranks fourth in franchise history with 17 home runs during interleague play. He needs three more blasts to tie Aramis Ramirez, who ranks third with 20.
If you watch his delivery closely, there’s a lot going on, Maddon said. That tends to lead to lack of command of the fastball, and he’s not the only guy. There are other pitchers that are like that, too.
Three of Chatwood’s walks came in the third, bringing his major league-leading total to 40, and the crowd of 37,168 let him hear it.
Ramirez delivered the big blow with his three-run shot to the right-field basket. Roberto Perez added a sacrifice fly, and the Indians sent nine batters to the plate in the inning.
Game Youth Jack Crawford Jersey Maddon lifted Chatwood with runners on first and third after he threw four balls to Greg Johnathan Cyprien Jersey Allen. Mike Montgomery struck out Bauer to end the rally, but got tagged for six runs in 2 1/3 innings.
Chicago was 0 for 10 with runners in scoring position and left 11 on base. The Cubs didn’t score until Ian Happ led off the ninth with a pinch-hit homer against Josh Tomlin.
Bauer said it was completely unrelated. He said it was a personal thing involving a close friend and their training together.
For people to take it a step further is just ridiculous, Bauer added. It’s a tragic day in our country’s history and it’s just senseless and that’s all there is to it. Shame on the people saying that. It’s completely unrelated.
