  • Cubs' Kris Bryant leaves game after getting hit in head by pitch

The Cubs, though, thought there was intent behind the pitch. He initially was called safe but then was ruled out on a video review of the play.

DENVER (AP) - Nolan Arenado broke for home the moment Brandon Morrow's bases-loaded pitch bounced to the backstop. Contreras grabbed it after it rebounded off the brick wall and threw a strike to Morrow, who tagged Arenado on the right ankle as his foot crossed the plate.

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant passed initial concussion tests after having to make an early exit from Sunday's game against the Colorado Rockies when he was hit in the head by a pitch. Bettis is coming off a gem at Pittsburgh in which he pitched 7 ⅓ scoreless innings in a 2-0 victory.

David Bote ran for Bryant at first base. He had a cut above his left eye. Baez came up with two big swings as he doubled and homered this afternoon, finishing the day with three RBI.

Bryant, 26, is hitting.319 with two home runs and 11 RBIs through 19 games this season.


He won the National League MVP award in 2016, the year the Cubs won the World Series.

He was visibly shaken and allowed four consecutive singles after that, though one on a bloop that fell just in between the shortstop and left fielder.

Postponement • The Mets-Braves game set for Atlanta was rained out and is to be made up as part of a doubleheader May 28. In his last outing, he gave up three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out four over six innings. Boston, which was the victim of a no-hitter Saturday by Sean Manaea, has lost back-to-back games for the first time this year. The Reds have the worst record in the majors at 3-18 and are 0-3 since firing manager Bryan Price and replacing him with Jim Riggleman.

Yankees 5, Blue Jays 1 • Austin Romine's two-run double helped NY win at home.

Baez hit a two-run double to highlight a three-run seventh, which loomed large when the Rockies countered with three runs in the bottom of the inning. Each team scored three runs in the seventh.
