Darvish tosses six stellar innings as Cubs win

Cubs Bryant returns from HBP to head

But the Cubs, helped along by Darvish's outing, pulled out the win, their fourth in the last five games.

Darvish started the fifth with strikeouts of Sogard and Manny Pina - the latter on a 64mph curveball - before giving up a single to Suter and walking Cain.

Indians 6, Mariners 5 • Corey Kluber struck out 10 in 8 2/3 innings and host Cleveland hit five solo home runs, including three in the first inning, to beat Seattle. With AP Photos.Cubs manager Joe Maddon hopes slugger Kris Bryant will return to Chicago's lineup for Saturday's game against Milwaukee.

"Sometimes when you need to get out of your zone, you need to be reminded of it", Maddon said.

With the game tied at 2, Addison Russell greeted Dan Jennings (2-1) with a single starting the bottom of the seventh. Manaea (4-2) no-hit Boston last Saturday and didn't allow a hit Friday until the fourth inning.

Jeremy Jeffress fanned Almora for the second out and got Baez to bounce to Sogard, who allowed the ball to squib out of his glove near second, then threw wildly past the base while trying for an inning-ending forceout.

"Tough play up the middle", Counsell said.

After loading the bases in the seventh thanks to some wildness from Cubs reliever Steve Cishek, the Brewers tied it 2-2 on Yelich's sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing, which a howling wind kept in the ballpark.

The Cubs responded in the bottom of the first with two runs off Brent Suter on singles by Baez and Anthony Rizzo. Pedro Strop picked up the win in relief.

Carl Edwards Jr. pitched a ideal eighth, and Brandon Morrow finished it off with a flawless ninth, striking out Ryan Braun for his sixth save.

After issuing a two-out double to Domingo Santana in the sixth, Darvish struck out Hernan Perez on a slider to end his afternoon.

Brewers: INF/OF Ryan Braun didn't start after playing first base in Thursday night's 1-0 loss.

Cubs officials said following the game that Bryant passed the concussion test and only had a laceration above is eye due to the impact of the baseball to his sunglasses.

"I want him to stay in the moment", Maddon said.

Hopefully, he will be back this weekend so Bryant can get this nasty memory of a fastball to the head situation behind him.
