Kris Bryant will see the Cubs team doctor on Thursday when they return home from their road trip looking for some final clearance to play. At the same time, Joe Maddon said it was "pretty much" up to Bryant when he returns as he's missed almost 3 full games after getting hit by a pitch in the helmet on Sunday. Maddon made it clear he's "not concerned" and indicated best case scenario is Bryant is indeed in the lineup Thursday night v Milwaukee. The team says he's still "under evaluation" though he passed all tests after getting hit.

Anthony Rizzo, Cubs first baseman

David Kaplan and Jordan Cornette talk with Cubs first baseman Anthony Rizzo about returning to Cleveland for the first time since the 2016 World Series victory.

The Cubs finally had a starting pitcher make it into the 7th inning this season, becoming the last team in baseball to accomplish that feat. Tyler Chatwood was pulled after 6+ so technically they still haven't had a pitcher throw more than 6 innings but at least he got there. Cubs starters have averaged 5 innings per start this season before Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Kyle Schwarber likes Cleveland. He made his ML debut here in 2015 and famously helped the Cubs win the World Series in 2016 after returning from a season long knee injury. He's gone deep twice tonight in the Cubs return to this park for the first time since Game 7. His first home run had en exit velocity of 117.1, the fastest for a Cubs since Statcast began tracking and the fifth highest in baseball this season. His second home run was a towering shot out to right. Schwarber has never had a 3 home run game. His batting average after the long balls is now .317.
