(MILWAUKEE, WI) The Chicago Cubs took the first game in a critical four-game series against the Milwaukee Brewers as they edged the Brew Crew 5-3 in 10 innings. Javier Baez hit a game-tying, two-out RBI single in the top of the ninth to send the game to extras while Kris Bryant belted the tie-breaking two-run homer. Bryant went 3-for-4 while Kyle Schwarber hit his 29th long ball of the season. Jake Arrieta returned to the mound and pitched five innings of one-run ball while Wade Davis earned the win. The win puts Chicago 4 ½ games up on Milwaukee in the standings and five games clear of St. Louis.


(ANAHEIM, CA) It was yet another series sweep for the Cleveland Indians as they topped the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim 4-1. It was the fifth series out of the last six that the Indians have swept. Francisco Lindor belted a three-run homer in the fifth while Edwin Encarnacion hit his 37th long ball of the season. Danny Salazar pitched just 2 2/3 innings but struck out four and gave up one earned run. Salazar, along with Cleveland’s five relievers, combined for 11 strikeouts. The Tribe continues their west coast road trip with a three-game set against the Seattle Mariners.


(CINCINNATI, OH) For the second time in a week the St. Louis Cardinals won a three-game series against the Cincinnati Reds, this time it was a series sweep after Thursday’s 8-5 win. Carlos Martinez earned his 12th win with six strikeouts and four earned runs over 6 1/3 innings while Yadier Molina and Dexter Fowler each had two RBIs. For the Reds, Homer Bailey was tagged for four earned runs over four frames while Scott Schebler went deep twice and Phillip Ervin added a two-run shot of his own. The Cardinals are five games back in the NL Central standings and visit the Pittsburgh Pirates over the weekend while the Reds host the Boston Red Sox.


(HOUSTON, TX) The Chicago White Sox avoided a series sweep as they edged the Houston Astros 3-1. Tim Anderson cracked his 17th home run of the season, a solo shot in the top of the eighth, to add an insurance run for the Sox. Rymer Liriano drew a bases-loaded walk while Kevan Smith grounded into a double play that allowed Yoan Moncada to score. It was a group effort on the mound as starter Carson Fulmer exited the game after just 2/3 of an inning. Chris Vosltad took on the bulk of the work as he pitched 4 1/3 innings to earn the win as he held Houston to one run on three hits. The Sox used eight pitchers in total as Juan Minaya picked up his fifth save of the season and the Chicago offense did just enough to get the best of Dallas Keuchel, who struck out seven over six innings of two-run ball. The Sox return home for the next seven games, starting with a three-game set against the Kansas City Royals.


The Taylor University athletic department has announced a post-game fireworks display following Saturday night's matchup with Trinity International inside Turner Stadium. The game will start at 7:00 pm with the fireworks display to follow at the conclusion of the contest.
