Kris Bryant: Not in Friday's lineup

Joe Maddon comes to Yu Darvish’s defense ‘This concept that he doesn’t compete is absolutely fabricated and false

After trotting into second, Darvish slipped, but he got to his feet and pitched a scoreless sixth.

Darvish (0-2, 6.86 ERA) faces some of the big-contract pressure that teammates Jon Lester and Jason Heyward have in the past. Chris Tillman pitched seven innings of one-hit ball for his first victory since last May, Pedro Alvarez went deep twice and Baltimore snapped a five-game skid with a victory over Detroit.

It was just the Cardinals third loss in 13 games.

The Cubs probably can get by for a few days without third baseman Kris Bryant.

At Wrigley Field, Darvish limited the damage to an unearned run and yielded just three hits and two walks to the 24 batters he faced.

After a 7-8 start, the Cubs have won six out of their last eight games.

"In weather like this, there are no runs out there", Brewers manager Craig Counsell said.

Anderson allowed five hits and walked one in seven innings.

Tyler Chatwood will toe the rubber for the Cubbies in this one and he has gone 1-3 with a 3.74 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP in four starts on the year, including 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA and a 1.86 WHIP in two starts here at home.

Bryant is batting.319 with two home runs and 11 RBIs in 19 games, but the Cubs played well in his absence going 3-1 including two wins in the first two games of a series against the Brewers, who enter Saturday's play in second place in the NL Central.

The two teams play again this afternoon with the pre game show at 12:45 on the Brewers Radio Network. ATHLETICS 8, ASTROS 1: Sean Manaea followed up his no-hitter with seven solid innings, three Athletics homered and Oakland beat Houston for its fifth win in six games.

Now, it has simulated Saturday's game 10,000 times, breaking down every conceivable at-bat to produce a strong money line pick.

"I'm not gonna get into health and symptoms and stuff", Bryant said."Our team doctor wants to make sure that I get to see my kids grow up and stuff like that".
