The Chicago Cubs got some key hits and effective pitching to get a big win.
Jason Heyward and Addison Russell homered Authentic Adam Boqvist Jersey , and Ian Happ had a tiebreaking RBI double in the seventh inning as the Cubs rallied to beat the St. Louis Cardinals 6-3 on Saturday night.
Chicago starter Kyle Hendricks (5-6) gave up three runs and seven hits in six innings, snapping a career-high three game losing streak. Brandon Morrow got the last three outs for his 16th save in 17 chances.
”We had great at bats all night,” Cubs manager Joe Maddon said. ”Had opportunities. Kyle (Hendricks) settled in. He’s still off a little bit but that’s what he can do even when he’s off. Just give him a lot of credit.”
Chicago trailed 2-0 and then 3-2 before Kyle Schwarber’s RBI single in the fifth tied the score for the second time. Happ’s double off Sam Tuivailala (1-2) in the seventh gave the Cubs their first lead.
Happ has three hits, including a homer, with two RBI and two runs scored in the last two games against the Cardinals, who dropped their season-high fourth in a row.
Heyward’s 410-foot, two-run homer in the eighth landed in the right field bullpen. It was the first career dinger allowed by Cardinals reliever Jordan Hicks.
”My hands have got to be free,” Heyward said. ”I’ve got to be able to use my hands and can’t try and hit (that 100 mph fastball) that with my body. If you try and do too much you’re not going to be able to make some good contact there.”
Heyward is hitting .383 (23 for 65) in his last 15 games, raising his average from .238 to .269.
”What was that a 99, 100 mile an hour fastball? He got to it easily,” Maddon said. ”He’s the guy that’s really ascended among the group. He’s made all the difference by hitting second and providing some big hits in the latter part of the game. He’s really good as the game gets in progress.”
Russell’s leadoff home run in the fourth tied it at 2-2, snapping Cardinals starter Carlos Martinez’s 47 inning homerless streak.
”Looking for something in the zone early in the count,” Russell said. ”I was really sitting on a fastball but I just saw it well and I put it out.”
Martinez struggled for third time since returning from a lat strain Authentic Martin Kaut Jersey , giving up three runs and seven hits. He walked six, at least one in each inning, and needed 98 pitches to get through five innings. He was able to wriggle out of a bases loaded jam in the fifth as the Cubs stranded nine runners against him.
”Better, but still not exactly where he wants to be, obviously the free passes,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. ”It just looked more like his stuff, good life, just looked consistent, had some close misses.”
Martinez helped himself with a two-out RBI single that broke a 2-2 tie in the fourth. Martinez’ liner fell just short of the outstretched glove of a diving Heyward, scoring Dexter Fowler.
Marcell Ozuna’s two-run homer gave the Cardinals a 2-0 lead in the first. The blast extended Ozuna’s home run streak to three games and his RBI streak to a career-high seven games. He is the first Cardinal to drive in a run in seven straight since Matt Holliday in 2013.
”Winning is more important,” Ozuna said. ”If we’re winning and you help the team a little bit, it’s good. But if you’re losing and you’re hitting good, what is the reason for it?”
Willson Contreras got the Cubs on the scoreboard in the third on a sharp infield single that deflected off first baseman Matt Carpenter. Ben Zobrist scored from third on the play.
Cubs: RHP Yu Darvish (right triceps tendinitis) threw a 35-pitch bullpen session on Friday and is scheduled to throw another when the team returns home next week.
Cardinals: SS Paul DeJong (left hand fracture) underwent a CT scan and hit off a tee. He will accompany the team on its next road trip.
Cubs: LHP Jose Quintana (6-4 Authentic Justus Annunen Jersey , 4.09 ERA) is 3-1 in five career starts against St. Louis.
Cardinals: RHP Jack Flaherty (3-2, 2.96 ERA) has won three of his last four decisions and is making his first career start against Chicago.
The Latest on the ads of the 2018 Super Bowl (all times Eastern Time):
The Giants won the Super Bowl.
Not really, but Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr. stole the show with an NFL ad in which the two perform the choreography from the movie ”Dirty Dancing” – complete with the iconic lift done by Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey.
The third-quarter ad was an instant social media hit. Twitter users said they had the time of their life.
Bret Werner, who is the president of MWW public relations, says ”the NFL spot on ”Dirty Dancing” was vintage. The Odell and Eli connection scored off the field.”
Hyundai is trying a stunt to advertise that it donates to pediatric cancer research every time someone buys a Hyundai.
The ad was filmed on location in Minneapolis in the days before the Super Bowl. The company invited Hyundai owners to the Super Bowl Experience fan event near the stadium and made them go through a pseudo-metal detector that went off when they passed through. The owners were brought into a room and shown a video about cancer survivors. Then, the actual survivors walked in.
Dean Evans, Hyundai chief marketing officer, says some of the Hyundai owners thought they were in trouble even though the metal detectors had hearts on them. He says, ”there’s this big heart the size of a head, glowing, and no one noticed it.”
Part of the fun for Super Bowl ad viewers is guessing which brand is behind the hokey jokes or inspirational messages before a commercial ends. Tide is playing on that game with a series of ads that give one answer: They’re all Tide ads!
”Stranger Things” actor David Harbor pops up in scenes that seem to be ads about different products: a car, an insurance company, jewelry and Old Spice (another P&G product). He proclaims them all Tide ads because everyone’s shirt is spotless – even the mechanic underneath a car.
The lighthearted ads have been trending on Twitter and getting good reviews.
Bret Werner is the president of MWW public relations. He says the Tide ad is creative and ”a great way to draft off of every commercial.”
The trailer for ”Solo: Star Wars Story” is getting the most Twitter attention so far Authentic Sampo Ranta Jersey , followed by Wendy’s attack ad against McDonald’s.
That’s according to an initial analysis by Amobee, a global marketing technology company.
Also among the most-tweeted were Tide, Ram Trucks, Pepsi and the back-to-back Mountain Dew/Doritos ad featuring Peter Dinklage and Morgan Freeman lip-synching to hip-hop.
Tide seems to be getting positive reaction for its attempt to co-opt all other Super Bowl ads. In a spot that harked back to the ”Energizer Bunny” of the 90s, the message is that anyone wearing clean clothes must be in a Tide ad.
Ram Trucks is getting mixed reactions. Many Twitter users were put off by the use of an MLK speech to sell trucks. Others appreciated the sentiment.
Fiat Chrysler is using the 50th anniversary of a Martin Luther King Jr. speech to sell trucks.
King’s voice rings out as the ad for Ram Trucks shows a series of ordinary people in acts of love. In his speech, King called on people to show greatness through kindness and service. The point? Ram’s tagline: ”Built To Serve.”
The ad, which wasn’t released early, contrasted with the humor many other brands are going for.
Wendy’s took its ongoing Twitter snark against McDonald’s to the small screen. Its first quarter ad called out its rival for using frozen beef in most of its patties. Wendy got into it before the game started, tweeting at McDonald’s: ”Who wants a Bread Mac?” That came minutes after McDonald’s aired an ad before kickoff.
Look for his coming on the first light of the fifth day, at dawn look to the East.
Oh no, that was Gandalf at the Battle of Helm’s Deep. The much-ballyhooed Bud Knight’s adventure turned out to be much different. More like that friend who’s always promising he’ll ”try” to stop by for drinks after the ”thing” he has later.
Bud Light is aiming to give impatient ”Game of Thrones” fans their fantasy fix with a series of ads that follow a hapless medieval army that shouts the nonsensical phrase ”Dilly Dilly” before battle.
They looked for his coming in the second quarter. Before halftime, they looked to the 60-second ad. But the Bud Knight blew off his military duties to have drinks with friends.
The Super Bowl isn’t the only sporting event in town. NBC will start broadcasting the Olympics just four days after the big game, so some Super Bowl ads are Olympics-related.
NBC is running five 60-second spots pregame Authentic Thomas Vanek Jersey , in game and postgame, each featuring an athlete’s Olympic story: skier Mikaela Shiffrin, snowboarder Chloe Kim, snowboarder Shaun White, figure skater Nathan Chen and skier Lindsey Vonn.
Meanwhile, Toyota has its own 60-second ad with an Olympics and Paralympics theme airing in the first quarter.
Some Super Bowl ads will pull double duty. For instance, Coca-Cola’s 60-second fourth-quarter ad that celebrates the diversity of its customers will also run during the opening ceremonies.
Just who are the 111 million viewers of the Super Bowl? According to Nielsen, the audience last year was almost evenly split between men and women – 5
