Price proves he's still got it after Quintana dazzles in Cubs debut

Cubs Game Notes For Friday @ Baltimore

Jose Quintana will make his debut with the Cubs on Sunday as Chicago tries to complete a sweep of its weekend series with the Baltimore Orioles.

Sunday afternoon, Jose Quintana was scheduled to make his Chicago Cubs debut in Baltimore.

Quintana, acquired Thursday in a blockbuster trade with the crosstown White Sox for four minor league prospects, dazzled the Orioles over seven scoreless innings, striking out 12 and allowing just three hits in the process.

The Cubs, who ended the longest championship drought in North American sport a year ago by winning their first World Series since 1908, had ended the first half of the season with a 43-45 record and trailing the Milwaukee Brewers by 5 1/2 games in the National League Central division. Later, with no outs in the ninth inning, Rizzo belted his 22nd homer into the center-field seats.

Zobrist and Heyward hit two-run homers in the second and third, respectively, to boost the margin to 8-0. Davis just gets better as the inning progresses - the first batter of the inning usually has the best chance of getting a hit.

A PADRES 7, GIANTS 1: Hector Sanchez and Corey Spangenberg each hit a three-run homer as San Diego won at home. C Willson Contreras has now hit safely in 10 of his last 11 games. Gausman has been inconsistent in a season where Baltimore needed him to step up. Example? Steven Matz tossed one inning Sunday, allowing nine hits, walking one while throwing 39 pitches. Russell responded when he hit a first-pitch, 96 miles per hour fastball off Brad Brach (2-2) over the left field fence. He previously beat the Orioles on August 22, 2014, when he allowed one run over seven innings. Lester is looking to bounce back from his last outing when he allowed 10 runs (four earned) in 2/3 of an inning - the shortest start of his 12-year career. The pitching is fifth in the National League in ERA (4.10) but needs improvement from their starters, who have been inconsistent. Caleb Joseph went 2 for 3 with a home run and two RBIs, while Ruben Tejada added the other run on the board for the O's in the loss.

He is 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in his only career appearance against the Cubs, and that was in 2014.

Mike Montgomery allowed seven runs (all earned) in 2.1 innings in his last start against the Brewers at Wrigley on July 6. The rest all were hit with runners on base. In the second game, Mookie Betts' two-run homer helped Boston to 3-0 win. In his first five seasons, however, he had a 3.41 ERA and never finished with a mark above 4.00. ANGELS 4, RAYS 3 Pinch-hitter C.J. Cron connected for a tiebreaking, two-run home run in the eighth off Adam Kolarek after Andrelton Simmons singled against Jumbo Diaz (1-4) for the host Angels.
