Cubs' Jon Jay up to fifth for Wednesday's game

Cubs' Jon Jay up to fifth for Wednesday's game

The Cubs announced after the game was diagnosed with a mild to moderate right ankle sprain and was day to day.

First up is this highway robbery of Bryce Harper, who thought he had a base hit. That pushes his ERA to 5.24 on the year and the home runs allowed to a MLB-worst 24.

"Manager Joe Maddon said they have no timetable regarding Bryant's status but knew for certain that he would not play on Thursday", Muskat wrote. The Nats now lead 8-4 over the Cubs.

TWINS 4, RED SOX 1 Adalberto Mejia pitched 5 2/3 innings in his second consecutive scoreless start, Max Kepler hit a two-run home run and visiting Minnesota rebounded from two consecutive losses against Boston. "You see him taking pitches and not really going for a lot of the bait". Ian Kennedy (2-6) allowed two runs and five hits in seven innings. However, he has seemingly back on track to return soon. "Hopefully, it'll just be a couple days". It began with catcher Miguel Montero criticizing pitcher Jake Arrieta for his inability to hold on base runners after the Nationals stole seven bases off the battery Tuesday. The reigning National League MVP required assistance to walk off the field, and was replaced by Jeimer Candelario. Harper and Bryant both grew up in Las Vegas and were on the same Little League Team.




Bryant has quickly established himself as one of the best players in baseball. He was helped off the field by the Cubs' training staff and did not put any weight on his right foot. He retired nine of his first 10. Ryan Zimmerman drove in a run with a single in the first inning.

The Cubs are also looking for a leadoff hitter as they have been using left-handed power hitter Anthony Rizzo in that role for most of the past two weeks.

In the bottom of the fifth inning, Bryant caught a high pop-up next to the third-base bag for the second out.
