Bryant breaks up Marquez's no-hit bid with double in 7th

Bryant breaks up Marquez's no-hit bid with double in 7th

The game was tied when rookie sensation Magneuris Sierra reached on an infield single with one out in the ninth, and he continued to second on an errant throw to first by A.J. Ramos (1-2). With the game hanging in the balance in the seventh, Marquez came through with the game's clutch hit against reliever Carl Edwards Jr.

The Cubs remain on the road through the weekend, with a three-game series at St. Louis. The Cubs were shut out for the second time this season... Carl Edwards Jr. got a groundout that moved the runners into scoring position, and Black chose to let Marquez bat against Edwards, who entered the game with a 0.64 ERA and had allowed four hits in 14 innings. He began the season in the fifth spot in the Cubs' rotation and didn't make his 2016 debut until April 8 after they had played four games and had another rained out. His two-run triple in the sixth put them ahead to stay, 5-4. Senzatela allowed two runs on five hits over six innings, but that wasn't the most impressive part of his day, Hanigan says. Lackey (3-3) faced just four batters with a runner in scoring position and threw 76 of his 105 pitches for strikes. Houston led 4-0 after Correa launched a three-run shot with no outs.

Story has struggled to a.180/.289/.396 slash in 128 plate appearances this season, but he has recorded six longballs and 15 RBI's.

With one out, Willson Contreras walked to load the bases.

Butler has a 1.17 ERA in five starts for Iowa and takes the place of lefty Brett Anderson, who's on the disabled list (back).

The Cardinals went 6-0 on their swing through Atlanta and Miami. Below are the latest details from the sports books for tonight's game. Seung Hwan Oh pitched a ideal ninth for his eighth save in nine chances.

The Brewers won a second straight interleague slugfest in game that had 24 hits, 13 for Milwaukee. German Marquez gets the ball, and he is 0-2 with a 7.31 ERA and 13 strikeouts this season. Two 22-year-olds and another just 23. Gallo and Rua each drove in three runs.

Ruiz earned another standing ovation a day after he returned and was honored with a video tribute that highlighted his career with the Phillies.

Hitless in 12 career at-bats when he stepped in against Edwards, fell into an 0-2 hole before he pulled a 94 miles per hour fastball into left field to make the score 3-0.

Now Game two was exactly how you should respond to an ass whooping.

Tony Zych (2-0) pitched a scoreless inning.
