Quintana to make Cubs' debut versus Orioles

Brewers won't mortgage future

Brewers won't mortgage future

Chicago Cubs and Baltimore Orioles face off in the second of the three game series on Saturday.

The bullpen continued to hold its own with Donnie Hart, Mychal Givens and Zach Britton combining for 4⅓ scoreless innings before Darren O'Day gave up a two-run home run to Anthony Rizzo in the ninth. The Cubs (who, we might remind some people, won the World Series last year) are built to win for the next few years.

Compare Garcia's average of 1.02 home runs per nine innings to Lackey's 2.19. ANGELS 4, RAYS 3 Pinch-hitter C.J. Cron connected for a tiebreaking, two-run home run in the eighth off Adam Kolarek after Andrelton Simmons singled against Jumbo Diaz (1-4) for the host Angels. Five Los Angeles pitchers combined for 16 strikeouts with no walks. Schwarber's was the only one that was a solo shot. ROCKIES 13, METS 4 Ian Desmond provided an instant spark for the slumping Rockies in his return from the disabled list, and Nolan Arenado hit one of visiting Colorado's three home runs.

YANKEES, RED SOX SPLIT: At Boston, Mookie Betts hit a two-run homer, helping David Price shut down NY 3-0 to give Boston a split of a doubleheader.

More than four years later, the Arrieta Orioles fans hoped to cheer for years ago was on display.

Arrieta needed 27 pitches to get through the first inning but escaped without damage as the Orioles stranded two.

The fact that the entire team contributed offensively is a good sign.

Jimenez is 1-3 with a 5.14 career record versus the Cubs (45-45). "I try to be positive, in a positive mood all the time, a good mood, take the time for a smile all the time".

TIGERS 6, BLUE JAYS 5: At Detroit, Miguel Cabrera walked with the bases loaded in the 11th inning Sunday, giving Detroit a victory. The same can not be said for the Cubs' pitchers who walked seven Birds and struck out eight. The offense took charge and fought back from a seven-run deficit to tie the game.

For the second day in a row, Baltimore's starting pitcher struggled.

The Orioles answered with a Welington Castillo solo homer in the third and a Chris Davis RBI double off starter Mike Montgomery in the fourth.

Caleb Joseph drove in two of Baltimore's runs with a homer and an RBI single.

There were two questionable decisions at the managerial end of things. Despite sitting 7.5 games back from first place in the American League East Division, the Orioles are just four games for the final AL wild card spot. "Obviously, I wanted to come out here and hit the ground running going into this second half". Davis just gets better as the inning progresses - the first batter of the inning usually has the best chance of getting a hit.

The Cubs showed plenty of punch and power Friday, hitting five homers in a 9-8 victory over the Baltimore Orioles.
