Javier Baez plays role of enforcer in Cubs' win

Dennis Wierzbicki- USA Today Sports

The ball bounced to the third-base side of the plate, Contreras grabbed it after a rebound off the low brick wall, and threw a ideal strike to Morrow, who tagged Arenado on the right ankle as Arenado's foot crossed the plate.

The Chicago Cubs have not gotten off to the start that they were hoping for, but they have been playing a bit better of late and they have really been having some fun on offense lately.

"We're always talking about this technological method of stealing signs".

Zammar, a Syrian-born German, was a key member of a Hamburg jihadist cell that included three of the September 11 suicide pilots. Their destination was Jarablus, a town under shared Turkish and Syrian opposition control near the Syria-Turkey border.

"Which is what I was doing", Baez said. "That was old-school right there", Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. "I don't know if it did to them". Baez, who had four hits, hit his sixth homer of the season to give the Cubs a 2-0 lead in the first. "They're trying to give the location or signs, and Javy's blocking. I loved it. I've never seen that before". The Cubs managed just six hits on the night - including two from Almora, who had four in Friday's win.

Chicago's offense wasn't as potent behind starter Yu Darvish. Kyle Schwarber also had a big game with three hits, including his 4th homer of the year, while driving in four runs. In his career, he has gone 7-4 with a 4.59 ERA in 18 games (17 starts) here at Coors Field and 1-2 with a 5.34 ERA in six starts during March/ April, plus 5-3 with a 3.74 ERA in 15 day starts, while against the Cubs he has gone 1-0 with a 0.82 ERA in two starts.

Baez became suspicious during the fifth inning of Saturday's 5-2 loss when the Rockies scored five runs with two out and a runner at second. Schwarber had three hits, connecting for his fourth home run of the season in the sixth to help break open the game.

It also targets a Russian military intelligence service, the GRU, which the USA government accused of interfering in the election. It is going to court and it is going to sue because it lost what should have been the "unlosable" presidential election.

For the second straight night, the Cubs grabbed a quick lead. Gerardo Parra then hit a two-run single to center field to push Colorado ahead, but the Rockies did not stop there.

After the first frame, Anderson settled into a groove and did not allow another run.
