Kris Bryant exits game with mild to moderate right ankle sprain

Nationals' Bryce Harper: Reaches base four times Sunday

After the game, the Cubs announced Bryant suffered a mild to moderate ankle sprain, and Patrick Mooney of CSN Chicago reported the team had not made a decision about whether to put Bryant on the disabled list.

Facing Lackey, Bryce Harper doubled with two outs in the bottom of the first. Lackey allowed a season-high eight runs and nine hits over 5 1/3 innings.

"Things happen. You have to fix them when things happen", Cubs Manager Joe Maddon said. They eventually lost 8-4.

TWINS 4, RED SOX 1: At Boston, Adalberto Mejia pitched 5⅔ innings in his second straight scoreless start, Max Kepler hit a two-run homer and Minnesota rebounded from two consecutive losses against Boston. "I wanted to get him off the field quickly and get it iced as quickly as possible".

After two innings, the Nats lead 5-0 for Strasburg. "Hopefully, it'll just be a couple days". His return could be coming soon as he'll start a rehab stint in Tennessee on Thursday. It began with catcher Miguel Montero criticizing pitcher Jake Arrieta for his inability to hold on base runners after the Nationals stole seven bases off the battery Tuesday. The infielder was named National League Rookie of the Year in 2015 and the Senior Circuit's Most Valuable Player in 2016.

OUR PREDICTION: The Cubs are just 6-15 in their last 21 road games, are 5-16 in their last 21 road games versus a right-handed starter, and are 0-4 in Lester's last four starts versus a team with a winning record. "So we'll see. I haven't seen the reports", manager Dusty Baker said of K-Rod.

Bryant singled in the first, doubled and scored in the fourth and struck out to end the top of the fifth.

Bryant's injury came while the Washington Nationals were trouncing them.

Chicago Cubs third baseman Kris Bryant is helped off the field after rolling his right ankle on the third base bag.
