Cubs stop five-game slide with win over Marlins

Cubs place Yu Darvish on 10-day disabled list with parainfluenza virus

Bryant hit his 100th homer - his sixth of the season - on the third anniversary of his first major-league home run in Milwaukee.

Caratini wound up with the winning RBI, a few innings after the Cubs catcher got into a heated situation at home plate with Miami's Derek Dietrich. As the two puffed chests at each other and traded words, both teams emptied from their dugouts in anticipation of the coming confrontation. "Not the best circumstances for him, but obviously I expect him to be better than that". Carl Edwards Jr. struck out three in the 8th for the win to improve to 1-0, while Brandon Morrow closed out the 9th for his 8th save of the season.

Miami's Justin Bour homered in a three-run first against Jen-Ho Tseng.

"You have good days and you have bad days", said Russell, who didn't have a home run this season - and only eight extra-base hits - until Wednesday's 13-4 rout of the Marlins.

Urena gave up three runs and seven hits in 5 1/3 innings.

Rizzo also had a pair of doubles and finished with five RBIs as the Cubs outscored the Marlins 31-9 in a three-game sweep after dropping a season-high five in a row. - Marlins manager Don Mattingly.

Disney CEO Bob Iger Responds to Comcast's Potential Bid for Fox Assets
According to CNBC , Comcast's bid would go forward if the United States Government approves AT&T's acquisition of Time Warner. Comcast's all-cash offer of $60 billion doesn't necessarily mean that it has the edge over Disney's lower, stock-heavy bid.

Here and gone: To make room on the roster for Rob Zastryzny, the Cubs optioned reliever Cory Mazzoni back to Iowa.

As for Heyward, he bumped his head on the right-field wall Sunday night at Busch Stadium in St. Louis as he tried in vain to catch Dexter Fowler's walk-off homer in the 14th inning. St. Louis has now lost two in a row after a season-best five-game winning streak, including a weekend sweep of the Chicago Cubs that ended with a 14-inning victory at almost 1 a.m. Monday.

Pitcher Yu Darvish has been placed on the 10-day disabled list with flu-like symptoms and will miss his start scheduled for the following day against the Miami Marlins, the Chicago Cubs announced on Monday.

The Cubs held second baseman Javier Baez (tight groin) out of the lineup.

The first indication of trouble came in the first when an apparent sign mix-up had the inning ending with slow Martin Prado going on a 3-2 pitch and Starlin Castro taking it for a called third strike.

Kyle Hendricks allowed two earned runs on six hits in eight innings to win for the third time in four starts.
