Panik homers as Giants beat Lackey, Cubs 6-4

A look at what's happening all around the majors today: --- STAY CLASSY, CHICAGO With his Chicago Cubs hovering just over.500, manager Joe Maddon is borrowing inspiration from the Channel 4 news team: new suits! The Cubs staged a furious late rally, with Javy Baez and Ben Zobrist each hitting two-run homers in the eighth inning to cut into a 6-0 deficit.

After totaling 24 runs in their last two games at Seattle over the weekend, the White Sox managed only Garcia's solo homer against Greinke, who walked one in his third double-digit strikeout game this season.

Yankees 4, Royals 2: Didi Gregorius, Brett Gardner and Chris Carter homered, and NY beat Jason Vargas again in defeating Kansas City in NY. Montero, the No.8 hitter, lined a leadoff double and pinch hitter Willson Contreras drew a walk before Baez's sacrifice attempt against right-hander George Kontos landed in front of pitcher.

In the first four innings, Cueto made three location mistakes and got punished on all of them, resulting in three homers and four runs.

Chris Davis and Jonathan Schoop pulled the Orioles to within 4-3 with solo home runs in the seventh, ending the day for Berrios, who had been dominant up to that point. In 2016, Lackey's two starts against the Giants resulted in wins, overall Lackey went 1-1 with a 2.37 ERA in three regular-season career starts against the Giants. Lester allowed five hits in eight innings. Getting Pence back will be quite nice.

Cubs closer Wade Davis gave up a two-run homer with one out in the ninth to Mac Williamson to trim the margin to one.

So far, it's been well-founded. "And something special could happen here", Lovullo said. "That's the game we're looking for right there". So even if Bochy's ire initially centered on that final pitch, his Eye of Sauron next landed on the run the Giants allowed the Cubs to tack on in the eighth. The left-hander went six innings plus one batter, allowing three runs and scattering eight hits. "I was kind of blacked out for a second".

Jose Abreu and Leury Garcia homered for the White Sox, who were swept for the second time on a 3-7 road trip. New York Mets' Jacob deGrom (48) delivers a pitch during the first inning of a baseball game against the Los Angeles Angels, Friday, May 19, 2017, in New York.

Oh, and Jon Lester pitched a Maddux tonight, going the distance on just 98 pitches. "He just kept getting better".

Andrew Chafin (1-0) threw a scoreless fifth inning to get the victory in relief of Randall Delgado.

Abreu was 4-for-5 with three RBIs. The second, on his index finger, formed in St. Louis last week.

BRAVES 5, PIRATES 2: At Atlanta, Matt "Big City" Adams hit a mammoth two-run homer to power Atlanta.

And earlier in the at-bat, Heyward barely missed breaking the game open with a three-run home run before the wind blew it foul. Molina's streak ties Kolten Wong for the Cardinals' longest this season. He is 2-1 with a 1.82 ERA in his past five starts. When you have scored the fewest runs among National League clubs, you accept any equalizer. The Giants followed with two more hard-hit balls, but Lackey got bailed out by two outstanding defensive plays.

Hill (1-2) walked four in the two-run, 36-pitch second inning.
