Cubs

Jason Hammel shut down the Pirates (11-9), limiting them to four hits across eight scoreless innings, striking out seven while walking none in the Cubs' 4-0 win on Monday.
The chatter of bringing a designated hitter to the National League picked up again with the Cardinals losing Adam Wainwright for the season. But Joe Maddon has zero interest in that idea.
Addison Russell is hitting only .136 through his first five games in the big leagues, but the 21-year-old infielder understands it all won't click for him overnight.
