Chesapeake's Eddie Butler makes Cubs debut

They know how to get the hell out of the way.

Will Mike Leake lead the Cardinals to a win versus the Cubs tonight at 8:15PM ET? Narratives haven't quite taken hold this season, but I can sort of feel one coming on: the Cardinals can't beat good teams. "I like our chances him going six innings and giving up two solo shots and us doing something offensively, but we just couldn't get much going".

Before that, the Cardinals had put together a couple runs in the fourth, but had been nearly silent since offensively.

Cubs: Reigning NL MVP Kris Bryant missed his second game with a stomach flu. "That had a tremendous impact on today's game where outs are awarded based on a fabricated rule".

While he's now valuable for the Cubs as a reserve, Happ will be consistently mentioned as trade bait this season, especially if Butler can't nail down the open fifth starter spot.

Anthony Rizzo hit ball back to Martinez, who underhanded the ball to shortstop Aledmys Diaz for the force.

"Eddie was really good wasn't he", Cubs Manager Joe Maddon said.

His ability to hit for both average and power, speed, and defensive versatility have propelled him through the minors, never spending more than half of a season at any level. I think we have a tendency to micromanage stuff that we have no business to do.

Familia's return uncertain: New York Mets closer Jeurys Familia had surgery Friday after being diagnosed with a blood clot near his right armpit, an injury that general manager Sandy Alderson said will sideline the reliever for several months.

Game two is today at 3:05 with Jon Lester going against Carlos Martinez. Tommy La Stella belted the third, touching Brett Cecil for his first of the year with one out in the seventh.

The focus of game two of the Cubs visit to St. Louis was on the young guns. The Cubs rested Thursday and find themselves 2.5 games back of the first place Cardinals, who are 19-14. In the top of the 5th, the Cubs looked as though they would bring the game within a run, but it was snatched away when Ian Happ's slide into second was ruled interference.

Braves 3, Marlins 1: Julio Teheran allowed three hits over six scoreless innings.

Centerfielder Dexter Fowler was picked off first base in the seventh inning as he represented the game tying run. Russell, who so far this year is batting.227 with two homers and 15 RBIs in 32 games, said he's not sure if he'll be able to start in any of the games this weekend.

But with the 25-year-old Judge, a 6-7, 280-pound outfielder out of Fresno State, the Yankees do seem to have new energy.
