"Even the homer he hit the other way, you don't see that happen very often here".

97 mile per hour fastball, middle in: Crushed! He tied the Milwaukee record held by Jeromy Burnitz (1997) with home runs in five consecutive games.

Chicago trailed 3-1 when Albert Almora Jr. reached Anderson for a two-run double in the third inning. Heyward, who has appeared in all but one of the Cubs' 14 games to date, was 2-for-4 with a run on Tuesday after going 1-for-4 with a run on Monday. He blew a save in that game, too.

They opened the homestand with a rain-delayed, first-ever championship banner-raising ceremony that finished well after midnight with Anthony Rizzo's walkoff single in the ninth.

You can catch the game on MyINDY-TV at 2:20 p.m. Pregame begins at 2 p.m. The cold, wet weather prevented (by my estimate) about half the 34,864 announced from showing up. Travis Shaw and Jett Bandy homered off Hendricks, who finished third in the NL Cy Young Award voting previous year (see full recap).

Mets 5, Phillies 4 •Jay Bruce homered twice and drove in five runs, including a tiebreaking shot in the eighth inning that sent NY to victory at home. More concerning is the walks, because command and control and location are Kyle's game. "We're going to have to match that intensity and play better".

Trying for his first four-out save this year, Feliz (0-2) struck out Javier Baez to strand a runner on third in the eighth.

"I think every team has to create their own identity", he said, "and every team has to go through that process again". Remember I talked about (how) it takes about a month to figure out your bullpen. Mike Montgomery, Pedro Strop, Koji Uehara and Wade Davis (2-0) combined for four scoreless innings, allowing two hits. Gonzalez allowed just four hits and one walk.

The Miami Marlins shut out the Seattle Mariners 5-0, the Toronto Blue Jays' poor start to the season continued with an 8-7 loss to the Boston Red Sox and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the New York Mets 6-2. When his curveball is on it can be devastating. Vargas (3-0) scattered four hits over seven innings with nine strikeouts and no walks.

Chris Iannetta also homered for the Diamondbacks, who scored a third straight victory.

Then came the bottom of the ninth.

Hendricks worked five innings before being lifted for pinch-hitter Ben Zobrist. Maddon: "It's on the ring". With a nice blend of young superstars and veteran leaders, the Cubs steamrolled the competition.

"Today, especially, that was an unbelievable win today", he said. But with the off day, Joe swapped the two.

Lester has not pitched at Fenway since July 20, 2014, and has not faced Boston since being traded to Oakland at the 2014 trade deadline. It also means Lester won't throw in Fenway.
