Cubs' Anthony Rizzo hits first triple of season
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo hit an RBI triple in the bottom of the fifth inning during Sunday afternoon's 5-3 loss to the Brewers. 

This was Rizzo's first triple of the season. A year ago, Rizzo only recorded one triple for the entire year. 

Rizzo's triple to center field came on a first pitch from Jimmy Nelson and scored Dexter Fowler. Rizzo finished the game 1 for 4, which included striking out once. He now as a slash line of .321/.471/.513.

Cubs' Jason Hammel delivers quality start vs. Brewers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Cubs pitcher Jason Hammel wasn't a factor in the decision Sunday, allowing three earned runs on five hits and one walk in six innings while striking out four in his team's 5-3 loss to the Brewers.

Hammel served up a solo home run in the second inning and followed it up by giving up a run in the third and another in the fourth, but his offense was able to bail him out by scoring two runs in the fifth. It's the second straight quality start of the season for Hammel, who has allowed three earned runs or less in four of his five starts.

"My feel wasn't there," Hammel said to MLB.com. "Today was a battle, grind it out, and try to keep it close. ... I kept us in it but it could've been a lot better."

Hammel owns a 3.73 ERA and 27:2 K:BB ratio in 31 1/3 innings. He'll square off with the Brewers again Saturday, this time in Milwaukee.

Cubs 3B Kris Bryant not concerned with lack of homers
by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer

Although he hit nine home runs in spring training and led the minors with 43 last year, Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is not too concerned that he has yet to connect this season, reports MLB.com.

"I could go the whole season without hitting a home run as long as we're winning games, and right now we're doing pretty good," Bryant said. "I know the type of player I am."

Bryant is hitting .280 with four doubles and 10 RBI this year.

"I'm sure that monkey coming off his back will help," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said.

Cubs claim Anthony Varvaro off waivers from Red Sox
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Cubs have claimed pitcher Anthony Varvaro off waivers from the Red Sox and designated pitcher Joe Ortiz for assignment, the team announced Sunday.

Varvaro made nine appearances with the Red Sox before hitting waivers, giving up five earned runs in 11 innings while striking out eight batters and walking six. He posted ERAs under 3.00 while making more than 60 appearances in each of his previous two seasons, both with the Braves, and he owns a career 3.23 ERA, 7.4 K/9 rate and 3.4 BB/9 rate in 183 2/3 innings across 166 appearances.

Ortiz, whose only major-league action came in 2013 with the Rangers, has given up four earned runs in 10 2/3 innings for Triple-A Iowa while striking out just one batter and walking five. He'll likely be reassigned to Iowa if he clears waivers.
