Cubs

Following a come-from-behind victory Tuesday night, the Cubs will look to keep their momentum as they square off against the Reds and you can catch all the action on Comcast SportsNet now.
The Cubs scratched Kyle Schwarber from Wednesday’s lineup with right rib soreness. Schwarber will get an MRI as a precaution after feeling something in the batting cage while warming up.
In a season where the Cubs aggressively accelerated their youth movement, Javier Baez had to wait until the rosters expanded on Tuesday for his first at-bat at Wrigley Field. Now, he's here with something to prove.
