Jon Lester is done after a fine return to the Cubs' rotation. Lester tossed five innings against the Dodgers, allowing one run and four hits while striking out five and walking none. He threw 79 pitches to 19 batters faced. It was Lester's first start since April 8, when he tweaked a hamstring while running the bases.

Cody Bellinger just doubled to right field for the Dodgers off Cubs starter Jon Lester. That gives Bellinger 84 total bases on the season. According to Elias, that's just one short of the big-league record for total bases by the end of April. Bellinger's former teammate, Chase Utley, set the mark in 2008.

The Cubs needed to open up a roster spot to make room for Jon Lester's return from the IL for today's game against the Dodgers. The odd man out is reliever Tim Collins, who was optioned to Iowa. Chicago still has two bullpen lefties in Kyle Ryan and Randy Rosario in the active roster.

Cubs closer Pedro Strop had quite the day/night. His car was stolen before the game so he was dealing with that "until the fourth inning" when he told police "I might have to pitch. I have to go." Says the car was later involved in a police chase. He was still dealing with the aftermath not long after securing the save in the Cubs 7-6 win over the Dodgers.

The Cubs are the first team since the Blue Jays in 2010 to hit multiple 2 out, 3 run homers (or better) in the same inning. Pretty rare feat.

Some sweet revenge for Rhys Hoskins with a two-run homer off Jacob Rhame, who had delivered a pitch over Hoskins' head on Tuesday that led to a little jawing and a warning from the umpire. That pitch may or may not have been intentional, but you know Hoskins enjoyed it: He took 34 seconds to get around the bases, a David Ortiz-caliber home run trot.

Some Yankees injury updates: Giancarlo Stanton had a left shoulder issue pop up while healing his left biceps (biceps have healed). He'll stay in SoCal this weekend after getting a cortisone shot earlier this week, rehab there, then rejoin Yanks next week in Arizona. Troy Tulowitzki and Aaron Hicks could be close to playing in games in Tampa. Miguel Andújar could get into some extended spring training game action this weekend (surgery seems like it ultimately won't be an option), Didi Gregorius threw from shortstop in Tampa recently, and is progressing. Hicks also has been making throws from the outfield and running the bases in Tampa.
