Cubs Game Notes For Friday @ Baltimore

17 July 2017

The Baltimore Orioles surged back from an 8-0 deficit Friday night against the Chicago Cubs to tie the game in the eighth inning thanks to a two-run home run by slugger Mark Trumbo, his 15th of the season. The bullpen has two lights-out pitchers, Pedro Báez and closer Kenley Jansen, but after that, the Dodgers are thin.

There were rumors that the Atlanta Braves were willing to offer the most quantity of prospects as well. That being said, Baltimore could be better served by selling from its biggest area of strength: relief pitching. Other than the home runs allowed by Gausman and Brach, the Cubs saw very little action on the bases. Wade Miley took the loss, falling to 4-8 this season after giving up seven runs on nine hits while walking and striking out four apiece. Willson Contreras added a career-high four hits.

Orioles: 1B Chris Davis (strained right oblique) returned from the 10-day DL and went 1 for 5 with an RBI double in the fourth. "We had such a big lead and then forfeited that lead". "The Tigers could get a huge haul for Fulmer, but they're trying to get their payroll down and get younger". "Unfortunately, they started here".

"He was a three-pitch mix with front-line starter ceiling", Hostetler said of Cease.

"Everybody knows there's a lot more we can bring out in the second half", Chicago's Ben Zobrist told MLB.com.

The latest report suggests that the Black Eagles may loan Costa on a short-term loan until January. During the live video, his Blues team-mate Cesc Fabregas commented: "Hahaha".

Nonetheless, Orioles trade rumors are flooded with trading left-handed pitcher Britton with the chance to acquire some high-profile prospects. More to the point, he got whiffs on 75 percent of the swings that pitch produced.

"I really believe that if we play with that kind of internal fire, that energy", Maddon said, "we're going to win a lot of games in the second half". He hasn't made it out of the fourth inning in six of his 14 starts this season. During that time they also dismissed their veteran backup catcher before returning home for those final six games.

Chicago Cubs manager Joe Maddon said his team is going to lean heavily on its offense to make a strong push for the playoffs.

Quintana, who had struggled in six previous starts against the Orioles, matched the Cubs' record for the most strikeouts in a debut.

That's how you could rate Scott Dixon at Iowa last week, a race in which he started towards the back and never was a factor. Newgarden, the 26-year-old from Nashville, won his second Honda Indy Toronto on Sunday, leading the final 58 of 85 laps.

Sunday afternoon, Jose Quintana was scheduled to make his Chicago Cubs debut in Baltimore. Saturday, Arietta cruised through 6 1/3 innings while the bats stayed hot and scored 10 runs.

Unlike the Cubs who drafted well and then traded to acquire prospects, Hahn has already stacked the farm system before having two seasons of high draft picks to further add to the organization. "Jed's an extremely smart man, and I wouldn't argue with him on a comp he gives". Warwick Saupold (2-1) got the victory with a scoreless 11th.

The Astros, runaway leaders in the AL West, are looking for starting pitching and banking on the health of Dallas Keuchel and Collin McHugh in the second half.

The Orioles' loss only furthered the notion the team could be in the market to sell and start to rebuild for the coming years.

This also raises the question about what kind of play in the AR space that Apple could have up their sleeve. It's possible, but would likely be viewed as a retrograde security step and attract widespread criticism.
