With seven stellar innings out of Yu Darvish and all its scoring from one swing from Kyle Schwarber, Chicago avoided a sweep and defeated is crosstown rivals Sunday, 2–1.
Darvish gave up six hits, one run and struck out ten to earn the victory. Schwarber’s fifth home run of the season came off of Dylan Cease in the sixth.
The win evened the Cubs’s record at 7–7 over their last 14. Now it will be four in Detroit, four in Cincinnati and finally three in Pittsburgh.
Alec Mills doesn’t strike out a ton of guys but he does a better job at limiting hits than one may suspect. He’s a guy who proves consistent command is all one really needs.
Detroit won on Sunday too, taking two out of three in Cleveland to do what it can to keep up with the Central frontrunners.
Casey Mize made his MLB debut last week, in Chicago, against the White Sox.
The first overall selection in the 2018 draft out of Auburn got 13 outs, seven on strike three, and gave up seven hits and three earned runs.
Much of the damage allowed came against the breaking ball, which hung up and out over the plate more often than desired.
His ability to spot the fastball and move it in either direction, along with his signature split to put batters away were enough to get fans seeing him for the first time excited.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction: we get ourselves a little pitcher’s duel.
I’m not sure there’s a definitive advantage in the starting pitching matchup but Mize certainly has more potentially dangerous at-bats to negotiate.
So consider Detroit a live dog at +135.
