Three days ago, I was able to go out and play catch for the first time, and [the hand] almost felt 100 percent. Its good to go. Ive let everyone with the team know that.Hendricks availability for Game 2 allows him to pitch at Wrigley Field, where he compiled a 1.15 ERA during the regular season. It also allows Arrieta to pitch at Dodger Stadium, where he threw a no-hitter last season. Lester was the obvious candidate for Game 1 after he shut out the Giants for eight innings in the Cubs playoff opener.Watched him the last game against the Giants, really calm demeanor, Maddon said. Threw the ball where he wanted to, him and David [Ross] always work well together.The Cubs spent Friday working on fundamentals as hitters were required to bunt off a pitching machine. They then they took full batting practice. The team is hoping to break out of a mini-slump at the plate, though Tuesdays four-run rally in the ninth inning of Game 4 against the Giants may have provided the boost they were looking for.A game like that could carry over, shortstop Addison Russell said. Well find out tomorrow. Karl-Anthony Towns Jersey . -- PGA TOUR Canada member Steve Saunders took a three-stroke lead Saturday in the Web. Gorgui Dieng Jersey .

"I was fortunate to play many years at this level with a great organization and unbelievable teammates," said Hejduk in a statement. MILWAUKEE -- Craig Counsell gave Junior Guerra an opportunity to complete a shutout.But once the Pittsburgh Pirates put the tying run on first base, the Milwaukee manager decided to go to his closer. It took Jeremy Jeffress one pitch to work out of trouble to give the Brewers a 3-1 win Friday night.The Pirates managed Andrew McCutchens RBI groundout off Guerra (7-2), who departed with two on and two outs in the ninth. Jeremy Jeffress got Jung Ho Kang to ground out to third base on one pitch to record his 25th save in 26 chances.He really earned the right to get through that inning, I thought, and I did want him to get through the inning, Counsell said. I really wanted him to get through the inning. I thought he pitched like he deserved to, and I dont think he was tiring or anything like that.Guerra entered the ninth with a scoreless streak of 19 1/3 innings. He allowed four hits, struck out five and walked one. During one stretch, the 31-year-old rookie retired 12 straight Pirates.Counsell visited the mound after Guerra walked John Jaso to put two on with nobody out in the ninth. The right-hander thought he was coming out of the game, but his skipper kept him in.Gregory Polanco and McCutchen then hit into fielders choices before Starling Marte chased Guerra with a single up the middle that hit off the second-base umpire.I really wanted it, Guerra said through an interpreter. Im thankful Craig had confidence in me to get it. Unfortunately I didnt get it. But thats baseball for you. Sometimes it doesnt go your way.Making just his second major league start, Pirates rookie Steven Brault (0-1) gave up three runs and seven hits over six innings. Recalled from Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday, Brault kept Pittsburgh in the game. He stranded a pair of runners in scoring position in the second and fourth innings.There wasnt a clean inning out there, Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. However he made pitches.Chris Carters two-run hoome run in the first inning was his 23rd of the season and his first since July 8. Jimmy Butler Jersey. Pirates catcher Francisco Cervelli had to be helped off the field in the eighth inning after a pitch from Juan Nicasio glanced off Scooter Gennetts leg and hit him directly on the inside of his right foot.Guerra has been a pleasant surprise for the Brewers since coming to the major leagues on May 3. He is 4-1 with a 1.47 ERA over his last seven starts.Fastball command was really solid, Hurdle said. Hes got swing-and-miss stuff after that whether its the split or the breaking ball, changeup.HOME COOKINGCarters home run Friday was his 17th of the season at Miller Park, giving him the most by any player in his home ballpark this season. Colorados Trevor Story and Baltimores Mark Trumbo each have 16.STOLEN BASE RACEBrewers SS Jonathan Villar and Marte entered Friday tied for the most stolen bases in the major leagues at 36.
