Chicago Cubs

MLB roundup: Cubs power past Dodgers


Anthony Rizzo and Javier Baez each homered, Jose Quintana registered his third straight quality start, and the Chicago Cubs coasted to a 7-2 win over the visiting Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday night.


Gardner, who went 4-for-5, came to the plate in the eighth inning needing that home run to become just the fifth Yankee in the last 70 years to hit for the cycle (Mickey Mantle, Bobby Murcer, Tony Fernandez and Melky Cabrera).


Joe Panik, Evan Longoria, Brandon Belt and Pablo Sandoval hit home runs as San Francisco found some offense while opening a brief two-game interleague series at Toronto.


Toronto made things interesting in the eighth inning when Rowdy Tellez hit his first career grand slam to bring the Blue Jays within a run, but the Giants’ bullpen closed out the victory.


The Red Sox got on the board on a Xander Bogaerts RBI single in the seventh, and rookie Michael Chavis blasted a pitch over the Green Monster in left for his first career home run to lead off the eighth and make it 3-2.


Bregman capped the Astros’ three-run fifth inning with a two-out single to left field off Twins right-hander Michael Pineda, driving home White and George Springer (2-for-3 with two walks, two runs and two RBIs) and pushing Houston to a 4-3 lead.
