Addison Russell Jerseys his eventful evening

Ian Happ put his head down and sprinted to third on a flyout that he mistakenly thought was a triple Desire is a powerful thing, and a fierce motivator. So when Cubs rookie Ian Happ found himself a Anthony Rizzo Jerseys triple shy of the cycle in Wednesday's 17-3 win over the Pirates at Wrigley Field, he had one thing on his mind: hit a triple. In the sixth inning, he laced a drive to deep left field and the race was on. Problem was, he hadn't actually hit a triple. He hadn't actually hit a single, either, as the fly ball was caught by Starling Marte in the left-field corner. Happ didn't know that, though. So he Javier Baez Jerseys ran around the bases, coasting into third with what he thought was a cycle-securing three-bagger: Oops! In the clip atop this post, notice how the crowd at Wrigley sounds audibly confused by the sequence, which is admittedly rather unusual. Happ came up again two innings later but failed to record a triple, having to settle for an otherwise stellar 3-for-5 night with two runs scored and four RBIs. "I loved the faux triple down the left field line -- that was outstanding," Maddon told's Carrie Muskat Addison Russell Jerseys after the game. "Good for him." And Happ's take: "I hit it, I was hopeful, I got it pretty good, 355 down the line. It's a little deep. I didn't know if it was going to get to the wall. Guys get confused with the bricks sometimes. Marte tracked it down pretty easily. I didn't see it. I had my head down. I looked at the umpire and he signaled fair and I kept going. I hit it and turned on the after burners, Chicago Cubs Jerseys but for no reason." Happ had even more to say about Addison Russell Jerseys his eventful evening in a postgame chat that aired on the broadcast: We've all been there. We all experience this sort of sensation in one way or another, believing something is one way when it most certainly isn't. The difference, of course, is our individual lessons in this don't happen in front of tens of thousands of strangers -- hopefully. So what are you waiting for, stop your mouse, click here, refuel!

Kuhl & the Pirates gang rout Cubs in shutout The Pirates have fallen far out of the National League Central Addison Russell Jersey race, but they can still play the role of September spoiler. They did just that Anthony Rizzo Jersey on Monday, as Josh Bell and Max Moroff backed up a strong start from Chad Kuhl in the Bucs' 12-0 win over the Cubs. Kuhl struck out a career-high eight over seven innings in his best start of the season. The 24-year-old right-hander gave up three runs on seven hits over 5 1/3 innings at Wrigley Field last Tuesday, but he was in command on Monday afternoon. Kuhl fired fastballs up to 99 mph and kept the Cubs' imposing lineup off-balance with a mix of sliders, curveballs and changeups, as he held them to four hits and two walks on 100 pitches. The Cubs have lost two in a row, but they maintained a 3 1/2-game lead in the NL Central because the Brewers lost to the Reds. More important, the Cubs may Chicago Cubs Jerseys have lost Jake Arrieta. The reigning NL Pitcher of the Month left the game with one out in the third inning, clearly favoring his right hamstring. His exit and the Pirates' big lead led to outfielder Leonys Martin making his Cubs debut on the mound, of all places, and giving up a home run to David Freese in a seven-run eighth inning. Bell and Moroff provided most of the early run support behind Kuhl, right-hander Javier Baez Jersey A.J. Schugel and Dovydas Neverauskas. Bell went 3-for-5 with a homer and four RBIs, and Moroff finished 3-for-5 with four RBIs. Starling Marte set the tone atop the lineup, going 2-for-4 with three runs scored, and he cut down a run at Javier Baez Jersey the plate in the second inning with a 99.4-mph throw from left field.

Tribe hoping to find footing, consistency The Indians arrived at Coors Field this week having heard all about the young and hungry Rockies. Over the past two days, Colorado showed the Tribe what the hype was all about, shutting Cleveland's offense down and piling up the runs against the Indians' pitchers. One year ago, that is what the Tribe did to other teams. The Indians were the surprise contender, and they shocked baseball all the way to a division crown and an American League pennant. In the wake of an 8-1 loss on Wednesday, Cleveland still looks like it is waiting for that old magic to show up again. "I hope we're not waiting for it, because then it's not going to come," Indians relief ace Andrew Miller said. "That's not the way it Cleveland Indians Jerseys works. We're fortunate that it's a long season. I think there's 25 people in here, there's a staff that believes we have better baseball ahead of us. But we've got to play it. We're not doing it right now." In Cleveland's two-game stop in the Mile High City, the Rockies Jason Kipnis Jersey outscored the Tribe, 19-4, and they forced manager Terry Francona to make 12 strolls to the mound for a pitching chage. In Wednesday's loss, righty Trevor Bauer was gone after giving up four runs in 3 1/3 innings, and that followed a four-inning start for Mike Clevinger in Tuesday's 11-3 loss. Overall, the Indians' bullpen logged more innings (8 2/3) and pitches (164) than the rotation (162 pitches in 7 1/3 frames). While the pitchers were being trounced, Cleveland's hitters were being shut down. In the two defeats, the Tribe scored all four runs on homers, with the lone breakthrough on Wednesday being a seventh-inning solo shot from Jose Ramirez. Jose Ramirez launches a solo home run to center field in the top of the 7th inning for the Indians' Andrew Miller Jerseys first run of the game That is not the brand of baseball that propelled the Indians to the top of the AL Central last year. "It's like we have to hope some nights," Francona said. "We need to go out and play the baseball we know how to play and dictate the pace of the game. ... The only thing we're really consistent in is being inconsistent. In our game, if something comes up short, you usually pay for it. Either we make an error, or the starting pitching doesn't Francisco Lindor Jerseys go deep, or we don't get any hits. "What I really care about more than anything is our ability to just value how important every game is, and leave it out on the field. If it's not good enough, then we'll come back tomorrow. If we do that, we're going to be OK." Bryan Shaw induces a 4-6-3 double play with the bases loaded to end the bottom of the 5th inning, keeping the score at 4-0 After posting a 1-4 record on this road trip through Kansas City and Denver, the Indians will have the chance to gather themselves during Thursday's off-day ahead of a six-game homestand. Maybe the past six days can serve as a kind of wake-up call for a Tribe club that has struggled to find its footing to Jason Kipnis Jerseys date. The good news is that the Indians -- coming off a World Series appearance -- know the talent exists within its clubhouse. "Other teams, they don't care what we did last year," Miller said. "They don't care what we were picked in the preseason, or what people think of us now, or what the experts are still talking about. We have to go out there and win games, and we're not doing it as often as we think we should right now. And, if we want people to change their opinion on that, we've got to go out there and do it."
