Kris Bryant absorbed the sights and smells and sounds of Wrigley Field. The prized power prospect of the Chicago Cubs struck out in his first three at-bats against James Shields and then grounded out in a key spot Friday during a 5-4 loss to the San Diego Padres. ''There's two sides to the ball, I felt I did well on defense.'' Called up one day after the Cubs ensured he can't be eligible for free agency until 2021, the 23-year-old who dominated in spring training went 0 for 4. Seeking their first World Series title in 107 years, the Cubs selected Bryant's contract from Triple-A Iowa and inserted him into their starting lineup as the cleanup hitter and third baseman.

The New York Yankees used Alex Rodriguez's big game to get a win on the road, and that was the most important part for the slugger. Rodriguez inched closer to Willie Mays with two more home runs, and the Yankees beat the Tampa Bay Rays 5-4 on Friday night. ''We needed this one badly,'' Rodriguez said after New York's fourth victory in 10 games this season. Rodriguez hit a solo shot in the second, driving an 0-1 pitch from Nathan Karns an estimated 471 feet to center.
