Cubs

The Cubs trailed three different times Tuesday night against the Reds, but timely hitting from Kris Bryant (3 hits) and Kyle Schwarber (2-run HR) helped the North Siders to an important 5-4 win.
The Cubs are still playing for something big in 2015 but they also must look to the future at center field, where Dexter Fowler or Austin Jackson could occupy the position moving forward.
The Cubs designated James Russell and Rafael Soriano for assignment Tuesday as the two veteran relievers were caught up in what Theo Epstein described as "a numbers game."
