Stealing Signals: These Are The Cubs We’re Familiar With

Rays 8, Cubs 3A seven-run seventh inning leads Tampa Bay over the Chicago Cubs, the team with the majors’ best record, topped by a Carl Crawford grand slam.

Yankees 2, Padres 1Joba Chamberlain strikes out 9 in 5.2, but gets the no-decision as A-Rod drives in the go-ahead run in the sixth.

Diamondbacks 2, A’s 1Justin Upton plays hero by smacking a homer in the eighth inning to make the difference.

Brewers 8, Blue Jays 7Thanks to the Milwaukee bullpen for making this game a lot closer than it actually was. Dave Bush threw seven innings of no hit ball before Lyle Overbay hit a triple to start the eighth, and then the Brewers pen gave up six runs in the ninth before holding on for the sweep.

Rangers 5, Braves 4Atlanta remains horrible in close games, losing another one-run game thanks to Michael Young’s walk-off single that scored Ian Kinsler (who led off the 9th with a double.)

Royals 4, Cardinals 1K.C. sweeps StL for the first time since 2001, thanks to Zack Greinke only giving up a homer to Rick Ankiel and Mark Teahen driving in three while being a double shy of the cycle.

Dodgers 7, Reds 4Yes, even the Dodgers can hit in the Great American Ballpark.  Eric Stults comes up from Triple A to pitch a shutout into the seventh, Aaron Harang joins Barry Zito in the 10-loss club, and the Dodgers’ hitters had five doubles in the game.
