The Cubs' World Series rings have a goat on them

The Cubs' World Series rings have a goat on them

Corey Seager had the best at-bats against Anderson and two of them ended in Albert Almora Jr.'s glove. The five RBIs tied a career high.

Anderson beat his former team with five solid innings, and Almora made two outstanding catches against the ivy as the Chicago Cubs blanked the Los Angeles Dodgers 4-0.

Former Dodger Brett Anderson is the latest lefty to smother the Dodgers, combining with three relievers - all right-handed - on a six-hit shutout Thursday afternoon as the Dodgers lost, 4-0, at Wrigley Field.

The Cubs players got their World Series championship rings Wednesday night during a ceremony at Wrigley Field before their game against the LA Dodgers.

"Those are plays that you don't expect to be made behind you and he made two web gems", Anderson said.

Javy Baez making a tough play look easy. It was the second consecutive day of challenging weather for the Dodgers and they did not handle it as well as Sunday's heavy winds at Coors Field.

In fairness, neither Trump nor the Navy said when the Carl Vinson was going to head north, so technically no one lied here. However, it was all a misunderstanding as neither the USS Carl Vinson nor any strike group was headed there yet .

Almora later prevented Seager of another extra-base hit, stranding Hernandez with a running catch on the warning track with his back to home plate. And as the clock passed midnight in Chicago and the weather grew ever more bitter, more and more fans gave up, seeking the warmth of home and heeding the alarm clocks that would be ringing too soon in the morning.

Anthony Rizzo and Addison Russell each slugged solo homers while Anderson scattered three hits over five innings and worked out of two jams as Cubs (6-3) took two of three from the Dodgers and claimed their third straight series triumph. Right-hander Brandon McCarthy (1-0, 3.00 ERA) pitches for Los Angeles, and right-hander John Lackey (1-0, 4.50) goes for Chicago.

Rizzo's no-doubter landed in a fan's beer in the bleachers located in right-center.

In the fourth, Russell hit a no-doubter onto Waveland Avenue for his first of the season and the Cubs were up 2-0.

"The thing that I talk to our guys (about), and I think I've said it before, it's the only game where the defense has the baseball, so we need to dictate the action", manager Joe Maddon said. "That came out hot".

According to the legend, tavern owner William "Billy Goat" Sianis was not allowed in Game Four of the 1945 World Series, causing him to declare, "The Cubs ain't gonna win no more".

Pence said after the meeting that Trump believes it is in America's interest to negotiate economic deals on a bilateral basis. The announcement followed an inaugural meeting Tuesday of the U.S. -Japan Economic Dialogue in Tokyo chaired by visiting U.S.

Twins 11, Tigers 5: Max Kepler, Miguel Sano and Robbie Grossman all homered for Minnesota, and the Twins took advantage of an uncharacteristically wild outing by Jordan Zimmermann in a rout of Detroit. "It's really nice. Seriously, I've been fortunate to have a couple more, but this is kind of next level for sure".

Last season's value of $2.2 billion put the Cubs in fifth position in baseball, but they did manage to climb a spot this time around. "We've got even better athletes in a way out there".

"My mindset's just to go get it", he said.

The teams will conclude the season series May 26-28 in Los Angeles.

Grossman hit a two-run shot in the third, and Sano connected for a three-run homer in the sixth. Colorado starter Jon Gray left with a re-aggravated toe injury after allowing one hit in three scoreless innings.

Phil Hughes (2-0) allowed four runs and five hits in 5 2/3 innings for the Twins. The game was the longest in the five-year history of Marlins Park. D'Arnaud also had a bases-loaded triple in the second, and teammate Yoenis Cespedes had his second multihomer game in three nights.

But at the same time I think we can do a much better job making sure that he doesn't get to play his game as much as he wants to. The fun got started for the B's in the second , but not before the crowd was silenced almost four minutes into the period.

In just one year, the average value of a Major League team has skyrocketed by almost 20 percent, now averaging $1.54 billion per team.
