Jackie Bradley Jr. "not worried" about his left thumb, which he said "bent in all directions" when he slapped home plate on a slide in the seventh inning Tuesday night. "It feels all right, I guess. As good as it can be after the injury." Described it as "just uncomfortable." X-rays negative, MRI Wednesday in Boston, will return to Cleveland in time for game but not likely to play.

Kris Bryant probably won't play on Wednesday after getting hit by a pitch on his left hand in the ninth inning Tuesday night against the Reds. X-Rays were negative but the injuries have piled up on him. He's had a bad ankle, pinky finger and now the outside of his left hand has a contusion.

The Cubs beat the Reds 13-9 after getting down 3-0 and 6-3 before tallying 10 runs in innings 6-8. Javy Baez tied it with a 2 run single in the seventh then Ben Zobrist followed with a 2 run double giving the Cubs their first lead of the night. They scored 4 runs in the 8th on four consecutive pitches, 3 singles and a wild pitch. Its the first time the Cubs scored at least 13 runs without hitting a home run since 2000. They're a season high 10 games over .500.

Red Sox 9, Indians 1: Doug Fister threw a complete-game one-hitter in his best start as a member of the Red Sox. Fister gave up a leadoff homer, then didn't allow a hit to the next 28 batters. It was his eighth career complete game and the first in which he allowed one hit. Eduardo Nunez, another midseason pick-up, hit his fifth homer in 100 plate appearances with the Red Sox after going deep four times in 318 plate appearances with the Giants.

Anthony Rizzo is playing third base in the ninth inning against the Reds with the Cubs leading big. Kris Bryant was hit by a pitch last inning and left the game after running the bases. The Cubs are out of position players besides catcher Rene Rivera so he entered sending Alex Avila to first base and Rizzo to third. Its Rizzo's first appearance at third base in his career.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

The Yankees beat the Tigers, 13-4, as Gary Sanchez put on a show. He hit a 493-foot two-run homer in the first and added an opposite field two-run shot in the ninth. Masahiro Tanaka, off the DL, pitched seven innings of three-run ball.

Scott Lauber ESPN Staff Writer 

Jackie Bradley Jr. leaves with what the Red Sox are calling a "left thumb injury" on the play at the plate. More details after the game, presumably.

Andrew Marchand ESPN Senior Writer 

Yankees catcher Gary Sanchez went the opposite way for good measure in the ninth. His second homer of the night didn't travel as long as the first, but it gave him 25 on the year and 11 in his last 24 games. His first inning shot went 493-feet.
