Anthony Rizzo’s three run
homer in the 8th off of Jeremy Jeffress sparked the Cubs to a 5-2
win over the Brewers on Thursday night in their series opener at Miller Park.  The homer spoiled a great outing from Jimmy
Nelson who gave up just two hits in seven innings of scoreless baseball.  Game two of the series is tonight as Taylor
Jungmann takes on Jason Hammel.  Coverage
begins at 6:35pm on News-Talk 1450 KFIZ.


A day after a deal with the
Mets fell through, the Brewers dealt outfielder Carlos Gomez and pitcher Mike
Fiers to Houston for four minor league prospects.  The Crew gets outfielders Brett Phillips and
Domingo Santana along with lefty Josh Hader and righty Adrian Hoser.  Phillips was a double-A and is considered a
5-tool player and a future All-Star.  He
was rated the #2 player in the Astros farm system.


The Blue Jays also traded
prospects to Detroit
for pitcher David Price.  The Giants also
send prospects to the Reds for pitcher Mike Leake.

The Green Bay Packers opened
training camp on Thursday.  The Packer
offense looked a bit sluggish in early drills and wide receiver Jared
Abbrederis appeared to hurt his tailbone after falling down running a pass route.  He hurt his ACL during the 1st
week of training camp last year and missed the entire season.  Green
will practice again this morning at 8:20am.
