The wait continues for the resumption of Cardinal baseball….It appears now that Friday will be the restart point…
CHICAGO CUBS 2 ROYALS 0
Alec Mills outdueled Danny Duffy as the Cubs shut out the Royals in Chicago. Mills allowed just three hits over seven innings to improve to 2-and-0 on the season. Rowan Wick got the final four outs for his second save. Javier Baez lofted a sac-fly in the fifth and Kris Bryant homered in the seventh to supply the Cubs’ offense. Chicago is 8-and-2 overall and 6-and-1 at home. Duffy allowed one run in six frames to fall to 0-and-2 with the tough-luck loss.
Ryan O’Hearn doubled for the only extra-base hit for KC. The Royals fell to 3-and-8. Rookie Brady Singer gets the start tonight against Kyle Hendricks…First pitch at 7:15 from Chi-town.
