a true leader.Center David Desharnais was slated to sit out a second straight game on Saturday but drew from chenwen's blog

CHICAGO -- Anthony Rizzo has been watching a lot of the Final Five gold medal-winning U. Nike Free RN Distance .S. Olympic womens gymnastics team. So when he jumped onto a wall to make a remarkable catch of a foul ball before sticking the landing, he had one thought.Maybe Final Six? Rizzo said, grinning.Jason Hammel threw seven innings of two-hit ball, Rizzo drew MVP chants after his circus catch, and the Chicago Cubs beat the banged-up Milwaukee Brewers 4-1 on Tuesday night to sweep a day-night doubleheader.Javier Baez hit a two-run homer while Hammel (13-5) struck out seven to extend his scoreless streak to 22 innings.But Hammel was more interested in talking about Rizzo. The first baseman jumped on the wall with both feet, leaned into the crowd and made a one-handed grab of Keon Broxtons popup in the fifth. He then snapped back and landed on his feet on the field.Stuck the landing, Hammel said. It was a great dismount.In the opener, Trevor Cahill came off the disabled list to throw five innings of two-hit ball in his first start in nearly 16 months in Chicagos 4-0 win.It was a nightmare day for the Brewers, who lost second-game starter Chase Anderson to a bruised left quadriceps after two batters and slugger Ryan Braun to a left knee injury in the fourth inning.We think we dodged a bullet there, Milwaukee manager Craig Counsel said of Braun. The doctor checked everything out and everything looks good. Its going to be day to day with him.Hernan Perezs two-out solo homer in the ninth off Travis Wood ended Milwaukees 17-inning scoreless streak. After another single, Aroldis Chapman entered and gave up a walk and infield single before striking out Martin Maldonado for his second save of the day and sixth with the Cubs.David Ross walked and scored on Kris Bryants single to left in the third off Jhan Marinez (0-1), who relieved Anderson.Hammel had two hits and the Cubs took control on Baezs two-run shot to left-center in Chicagos three-run sixth off lefty Rob Scahill to secure its 13th win in 15 games.In the opener, Chapman got two outs and reached 103 mph to complete the three-hitter.Its probably a demoralizing feeling for the other team to see him warming up, Hammel said.The Brewers were left with seven losses in 10 games amid plenty of bad news.Anderson, who took a no-hitter into the eighth in his last start against the Cubs, was struck by Bryants comebacker. Anderson fielded and threw to first for the second out, but then limped off.Stiff and sore, Anderson said. Theres really not too much pain. Luckily it got all the muscle, so its just trying to get the swelling to go down.Braun limped off in the fourth after he crumpled into the side wall trying to catch a fly ball down the left field line.I sprained my knee, sprained my ankle a little bit, Braun said. But I think all things considered, it was probably the best scenario.Mike Montgomery followed Cahill in the first game and pitched two innings, Hector Rondon worked the eighth and Joe Smith walked two in the ninth.Cahill (2-3) also drove in a run with a safety squeeze, and the Cubs added runs on a wild pitch and Addison Russells sacrifice fly off Matt Garza (4-5).With right-hander John Lackeys right shoulder still sore after he left Sundays start, Cahill provides an option if the Cubs need a replacement.He gave us something to talk about, manager Joe Maddon said.Cahill bunted a 3-2 pitch in the fourth, and first baseman Chris Carters flip home wasnt in time to get Chris Coghlan.Garza allowed five hits and threw 103 pitches in five innings. Tyler Cravy, Milwaukees 26th player, threw two scoreless innings.They did a good job of grinding out at-bats, Garza said. They fouled off a lot pitches. Granted, I didnt have the best command.TRAINERS ROOMBrewers: Struggling RHP Michael Blazek went on the 15-day DL with a right forearm strain. He was really just fatigued, Counsell said. ... Damien Magnifico was called up from Triple-A Colorado Springs and gave up Coghlans sacrifice fly in the eighth in the opener in his major league debut.Cubs: RHP Pedro Strop (knee surgery) was off crutches. Hes expected to miss at least a month.PAPELBON?Maddon said he hasnt been involved in any discussions about signing former Nationals closer Jonathan Papelbon, who was released Saturday by Washington.Im not saying it cant happen, Maddon said, but for right now there is nothing happening.UP NEXTCubs RHP Jon Lester (12-4, 2.93 ERA) faces RHP Jimmy Nelson (6-12, 4.07) on Wednesday night.

MONTREAL -- The Florida Panthers rallied for a crucial win in their most recent outing. Now theyre hoping it gives them some momentum as they embark on a four-game road trip.Trailing 2-0 in the third period against the Islanders on Saturday, the Panthers tied it late in regulation and emerged victorious when rookie Denis Malgin scored late in overtime. With the win, Florida continued its pattern of alternating wins and losses in its past seven games.That was a big win for us, goaltender Roberto Luongo told reporters after the game. Not just the matter of getting a win, but something of a rallying point for guys. Hopefully, we can build around, take the momentum, the emotions of the win and carry it through the next little while here.Last seasons Atlantic Division champions, the Panthers (7-7-1) entered the 2016-17 campaign expected to once again challenge for the title. But early-season injuries to key players have plagued the club, which finds itself sixth in the division, albeit only five points out of second place. The team infirmary is starting to clear out, however. Veteran Jussi Jokinen recently returned and center Nick Bjugstad could make his season debut later in the week.Jonathan Marchessault has been a pleasant surprise for Florida and leads the team with eight goals and 14 points. The early season hasnt been as kind to star defenseman Aaron Ekblad, who finds himself with two points on the year thus far, both goals.I got to get into the offensive zone, I got to get pucks to the net, he told the Sun-Sentinel. I cant be looking to pass or make plays. My job is getting pucks to the net, not be the rush, but be supportive in it.In his third NHL season, Ekblad started the year as now the mentor after being the protege to former Panthers Brian Campbell and Willie Mitchell. Head coach Gerard Gallant paired him with rookie Mike Matheson, a Montreal native, but the duo struggled and was split upp before Saturdays game, putting Ekblad with Mark Pysyk. Nike Free Run 2 Black. It takes time to gel, time to get used to each other, time to build that kind of chemistry, Ekblad said to the Sun-Sentinel. I always had an older guy to lean on. Now, after three years, its my job to instill that knowledge that I learned from them on him and support him and work off each other.Its the first of four meetings between the two clubs. Last year, Florida swept the season series.The Canadiens (13-2-1) are coming off just their second regulation loss of the season after falling to the Blackhawks on Sunday night in Chicago. After a one-and-done road trip, the Habs return to the cozy confines of the Bell Centre, which hasnt been welcoming to visitors this season.Montreal is a perfect 10-0-0 at home, outscoring its opponents 37-12 in those games. Only one team has managed to get more than two goals into the Canadiens net at the Bell Centre. It broke a franchise record and is the second-longest home winning streak to start an NHL season, tying the 1924-25 Ottawa Senators.The 1963-64 Chicago Blackhawks hold the record, which stands at 11. The Canadiens can match that with a win against the Panthers.A large part of Montreals success -- at home and overall -- has been the remarkable play by Carey Price between the pipes.The way Carey is playing, he gives us a lot of confidence as a team, coach Michel Therrien said following Saturdays home win over Detroit. Hes a true leader.Center David Desharnais was slated to sit out a second straight game on Saturday but drew back in after Brian Flynn was a late scratch due to an upper-body injury. The Canadiens had the day off on Monday but they did call up forward Chris Terry from the AHLs St. Johns IceCaps. Terry leads the AHL club with 15 points in 10 games.
