  • Cubs rotation finally living up to the hype after dominating Brewers in series sweep

Cubs manager Joe Maddon hopes slugger Kris Bryant will return to Chicago's lineup for Saturday's game against Milwaukee.

"And making sure the medical procedures are being followed so we do everything right", Maddon said.

Darvish cruised into the fifth, the inning which had been his Achilles heel in three of his first four starts as a Cub. The Cubs are -175 on the money line, meaning it would take a $175 bet on Chicago to return $100.

"Probably the word on the street is to pitch him inside", Maddon said. The four-time All-Star signed a $126 million, six-year contract with the Cubs and entered with just one solid outing: He allowed one run over six innings at Milwaukee on April 7.

He yielded just three hits with eight strikeouts and two walks, lowering his ERA from 6.86 to 5.26.

Right-hander Yu Darvish was cruising along in his second start at Wrigley Field in a Cubs uniform when he reached the dreaded fifth inning - and managed to get through it unscathed. After trotting into second, Darvish slipped, but he got to his feet and pitched a scoreless sixth.

The Brewers other run scored on a first inning sac-fly from Jesus Agiluar. Bryant, who typically has hit second during his career, will hit third against Milwaukee. Darvish left with the Cubs ahead 2-1, but Christian Yelich hit a seventh-inning sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing. Albert Almora Jr. led off with a double, extending his hitting streak to a career-high 10 games, before Baez singled him home, also extending his hitting streak to a career-high 10 games.

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.

Suter allowed two runs and five hits in five innings.

Cubs: Bryant wasn't available to reporters before the game. There's also the issue of any lingering fear factor Bryant might have once he steps back into the batter's box, and he's also the major league leader with seven hit by pitches as the first month of the season winds down. But there are times even good players don't process the moment well enough and things get away from them.
