Javier Baez leaves game vs. Brewers after collision


Baez had a welt around his left eye as he walked off the field accompanied by manager Joe Maddon. "Probably one of the worst pitches I threw all day and even though it wasn't hit hard, you'd nearly feel better about giving up a 500-foot homer in the first than a weak-hit single there in the sixth".

Baez gave up a thumbs up and was able to walk off after the play, but the Cubs understandably removed him from the game. Maddon said Baez will have a regularly scheduled off day Sunday. Both bullpens would battle it out until the bottom of the eleventh, when a wild pitch with the bases loaded would bring home the winning run for a 2-1 Brewers victory. The Cubs later announced Baez suffered a bruise above his left eye.

"I felt good about giving us a chance, but bad about giving up a hit at the most inopportune time of my outing", Anderson said.

The Chicago Cubs won't play their home opener at Wrigley Field for another four days, but Friday will offer the next-best thing when the Cubs open a three-game series with the Milwaukee Brewers at Miller Park. I'm certain he'll be fine by tomorrow. Contreras' throw home to Montgomery was late, and the Brewers celebrated by mobbing Braun at the plate.

Braun led off the inning with a single before moving to third after Jesus Aguilar walked and Jett Bandy was hit by pitch.


This collision came a year after Schwarber ran into Dexter Fowler in the outfield in Arizona and tore two ligaments in his left knee.

Thanks to scheduling and weather delays during the Cubs' opening series in St. Louis last week Hendricks will be taking the mound on eight full days of rest since his last outing, when he pitched five scoreless innings in an exhibition at Houston.

Brewers: OF Keon Broxton was eager to return to the batter's box a day after getting hit in the helmet by a 92 miles per hour fastball. "I'm not scared to go back in there. I'm ready, man", he said.

Kyle Hendricks gets the call for game 2, after going 6-8 with a 2.13 ERA and 170 strikeouts last season. In 32 career starts against the Rockies, Kershaw is 18-5 with a 3.08 ERA but at Coors Field, he owns a 4.63 ERA.

Chicago Cubs' Jason Heyward, right, is tagged out trying to steal second base by Milwaukee Brewers' Jonathan Villar during the fourth inning of a baseball game Friday, April 7, 2017, in Milwaukee. The veteran left-hander moved into the rotation when Opening Day starter Junior Guerra was lost to a strained calf just three innings into the season opener.
