Panik homers as Giants beat Lackey, Cubs 6-4

Alex Pavlovic Instant Analysis Five takeaways from Giants 4-1 loss to Cubs

Teheran goes Wednesday. Dickey is 3-4 with a 6.20 ERA in eight career starts on three days' rest.

Panik slugged his second homer of the year as the Giants claimed a 1-0 first-inning lead.

Bottom WPA Play: Brandon Crawford's double to right in the top of the fifth plated Buster Posey for the Giants only run of the night (-0.064).

Mark Melancon managed another saved game this season while newbie Joe Panik's at-bats boosted the Giants as they got the win against the Cubs on Monday. His previous longest outing of the season was seven innings, on April 16 against Pittsburgh and May 7 against the New York Yankees. Cueto struck out 10 while throwing eight innings of three-hit ball.

ASTROS 1, TIGERS 0: At Houston, Brad Peacock and three relievers combined for a one-hitter and Jose Altuve provided the offense with an RBI double to lead Houston.

Lester gave up a second-inning hit when Schwarber missed on a diving try on Justin Ruggiano's long fly to left.

Cubs: LHP Brett Anderson, who is on the 10-day DL with a lower back strain, is scheduled for a bullpen session on Tuesday.

Cueto allowed four runs in six innings, all on the homers, in a confounding start. Jordan Zimmermann (4-2, 6.25) pitches for Detroit.

Kroenke has long maintained his investment is on behalf of his family for the long term and he sees it as being for generations. Kroenke, though, could face a battle to win back the trust of those supporters who believe a change is needed in the boardroom.

Joe Mauer had three hits, two RBIs and scored twice for the Twins, who reached season highs in runs and hits (21).

Cueto's matchup with Jon Lester, the Game 5 that could have been, was no contest.

BRAVES 5, PIRATES 2: At Atlanta, Matt "Big City" Adams hit a mammoth two-run homer to power Atlanta. The Indians had won their last four at Great American Ball Park and six straight overall in the OH series. He gave up four hits, including Jason Kipnis' homer, while becoming the first Cincinnati starter in the last 10 games to make it through six innings. After the first four batters struck out, Schwarber drove a 3-2 pitch from Cueto over the bleachers in right and onto Sheffield Avenue for his seventh homer.

Heyward added another solo shot into the basket in right in the second, and Rizzo's ninth homer made it 4-0 in the fourth. The whole Game 4 in San Francisco, I did focus on that a lot, trying to understand Game 5 back at home, how this is going to play out and do whatever we possibly can to win that game there, that night in San Francisco. He is now 13-2 at Wrigley Field since the start of last season and has a 12-game home winning streak. He allowed all of Washington's runs and 14 of their 15 hits without recording a strikeout.
