Cubs avoid fifth straight loss, Yankees beaten

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

Marlins 5, Mariners 0: Chen Wei-yin, Brad Ziegler and Kyle Barraclough combined for a one-hitter, Justin Bour had two hits, including a two-run home run in the third, and Miami shut out Seattle.

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

Anthony Rizzo grounded out, and Russell followed with a drive into the left-field bleachers on a 2-0 count.

BREWERS KEY TRENDS: The Brewers have won seven of their last eight road games and are 5-1 in their last six games overall. An RBI single from Russell in the eighth cut the deficit to 4-3.

All the Cubs needed in that situation was a base hit, but Russell came through with a no-doubt-about-it three-run homer into a very strong wind blowing out off Neftali Feliz.

John Lackey didn't exactly storm into the interview room after a 6-3 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers, turning to a Cubs media relations official as he sat down at the table and saying: "It beats working at Sears, huh?"

Milwaukee made it 4-1 in the fourth when Jonathan Villar singled home Orlando Arcia from second base with two out.




That's a walk-off, and that's two straight wins for the Cubs after losing four in a row. That shot put a jolt through frigid Yankee Stadium, where fans hid beneath big coats and later umbrellas when a light rain began in the eighth inning.

"They kept extending at-bats and fouling off pitches, to their credit", Counsell said.

Eric Thames walked and Shaw hit his fourth homer of the season - and second in the series - to give the Brewers a 2-0 lead in the first inning.

That was the rallying cry past year, and it rang out in the clubhouse after Game 7 of the 2016 World Series.

Russell's walk-off was the second of his career, with today's game victor coming a day after Chicago rallied from 5-0 and 7-4 down to win 9-7. It could be the last start for a while for Milone with the projected return of right-hander Matt Garza (right groin strain) from the disabled list later this week.

Luckily, Chicago has the best team ERA in the National League, with Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, and Anderson leading the rotation.
