  • Sharma: 'Yuge' piece of advice from Joe Maddon settles down Yu Darvish

On Friday morning, Cubs manager Joe Maddon explained what the goal of his recent meeting with struggling starter Yu Darvish was all about.

"And making sure the medical procedures are being followed so we do everything right", Maddon said. Anderson has won his past two outings but has already dropped one decision against the Cubs this season. The Cubs said that Bryant does not have a concussion. The four-time All-Star signed a $126 million, six-year contract with the Cubs and entered with just one solid outing: He allowed one run over six innings at Milwaukee on April 7. Darvish yielded just three hits against the Brewers with eight strikeouts and two walks.

Darvish got his second big league double and fifth hit with a drive into the right-field corner in the fifth inning against Suter. Dan Jennings took the loss.

Indians 6, Mariners 5 • Corey Kluber struck out 10 in 8 2/3 innings and host Cleveland hit five solo home runs, including three in the first inning, to beat Seattle.

Jeremy Jeffress fanned Almora for the second out and got Javier Baez to bounce to Sogard, who allowed the ball to squib out of his glove near second, then threw wildly past the base while trying for an inning-ending forceout.

After loading the bases in the seventh thanks to some wildness from Cubs reliever Steve Cishek, the Brewers tied it 2-2 on Yelich's sacrifice fly off Brian Duensing, which a howling wind kept in the ballpark. But they will begin the four-game weekend set at Wrigley Field without first baseman Eric Thames, who is expected to miss up to two months with a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his left thumb.

Pedro Strop (3-0) retired Aguilar - his only batter - on a flyout that ended the seventh.

Carl Edwards Jr. and Brandon Morrow sealed the deal as the Cubs improved to 13-10 on the season with their second straight one-run win over their Central Division rivals.

Suter allowed two runs and five hits in five innings. Last year, the slugger was hit by a pitch 15 times.

Bryant has reportedly been working in the batting cage the past few days, with the Cubs' training staff monitoring him.

"But I think it's a good thing too".
